Draymond Green is probable vs. the Hornets

Well, that was quick.

NBA: Golden State Warriors at Sacramento Kings Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports

Draymond Green is now listed as probable when the Golden State Warriors face the Charlotte Hornets on Monday evening. And that is exceptional news for Warriors fans.

The Warriors meet the Hornets in North Carolina just two days after Green sprained his ankle in a loss to the Houston Rockets, and limped off the court in visible pain. Green said after the game that he sprained the ankle early in the contest, and then re-aggravated the injury in the fourth quarter, when he left the game.

But apparently it wasn’t serious. Green hit the practice court on Sunday, and it doesn’t appear that he was slowed down by the injury.

Green has missed 15 games this year - 14 due to injury, and one due to rest - so he would surely be relieved to not miss any more time.

And for the Warriors, this is the best news possible. The three-time All-Star looked like he may have suffered a serious injury, and now it turns out that he might not even miss any time.
