Congratulations to Draymond for this life-altering moment.
On the court, there’s little doubt the Warriors will be impacted a great deal by the absense of their do-it-all power forward. In addition to missing Thursday’s outing, Green could be absent for the Warriors next two games, including their NBA Finals rematch with the Cleveland Cavaliers on Christmas.
Green is having the best season of his career. He’s averaging 10.6 points, 8.8 rebounds, 7.2 assists, 2.3 steals and 1.3 blocks per game for the 25-4 Warriors.
