Warriors’ Green (foot) probable for today’s game vs. Trail Blazers
Warriors forward Draymond Green is probable for tonight’s home opener against the Portland Trail Blazers, according to head coach Steve Kerr.
Green, who missed all of training camp and the preseason because of a positive coronavirus test, has yet to play this season because of a foot injury and conditioning issues. He was a full participant in Thursday’s practice and “looked great” in the team’s 12-minute scrimmage, according to Kerr.
In the past two games, two-way forward Juan Toscano-Anderson started in Green’s place at power forward alongside Stephen Curry, Kelly Oubre Jr., Andrew Wiggins and James Wiseman.
