DRAYMOND GREEN (PF)
  • Jul 11 2016, 11:32 AM

    Update: Green was arrested Sunday in East Lansing, Mich. on assault charges, ESPN.com reports.

    Analysis: According to police, Green had an altercation with a man at an East Lansing restaurant, but little information beyond that has been provided. The Warriors are investigating the incident and won't provide comment on Green's arrest until more information is learned. Green, who earned second-team All-NBA honors in 2015-16, is set to play for Team USA in August during the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.

    Update: Green will play for Team USA in the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, ESPN.com's Marc J. Spears reports.

    Analysis: Green reportedly accepted the invitation before the Warriors' disappointing series loss to the Cavaliers in the NBA Finals, but with a few weeks to rest up before the U.S. team begins training, the versatile big man should be raring to go. After earning second-team all-NBA and first-team all-defense honors in the regular season, Green finished the playoffs with averages of 15.4 points (on 43.1% shooting from the field), 9.9 rebounds, 6.0 assists, 1.8 blocks, 1.7 three-pointers and 1.6 steals across 38.2 minutes in 23 appearances.

    Update: Green registered 32 points (11-15 FG, 6-8 3Pt, 4-4 FT), 15 rebounds, nine assists and two steals across 47 minutes during the Warriors' 93-89 loss to the Cavaliers in Sunday's Game 7.

    Analysis: Green had scored in single digits during his last three appearances, but he saved his best effort of the postseason for Game 7. Unfortunately for the Warriors, neither Stephen Curry (17 points) and Klay Thompson (14 points) were able to get much going, ultimately resulting in the Warriors falling short of back-to-back NBA titles. Green's Game 5 suspension following his late-game incident with LeBron James in Game 4 seemed to turn the tide in the series, as the Cavs won the final three games of the series to bring the Larry O'Brien Trophy back to Cleveland. Despite the disappointing ending, Green played pretty well while going toe-to-toe with James, averaging 16.5 points, 10.3 rebounds, 6.3 assists, 1.7 steals and 1.0 block across 40.0 minutes per game in his six appearances in the series.

    Update: Green contributed eight points (3-7 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT) to go with 10 rebounds, six assists, one steal and one block in 41 minutes in Thursday's 115-101 Game 6 loss to the Cavaliers.

    Analysis: It was a respectable game for Green, who put forth a good effort in several areas, but had little overall impact on offense. On most occasions, Green's ability to play some tough defense and make a few plays is enough for the Warriors, but in Game 6, they needed more from him as a scorer, as Andre Iguodala (back) was hurting and Harrison Barnes (0-8 FG) went without a point.

    Update: Green will start in his return on Thursday against the Cavaliers, Monte Poole of CSN Bay Area reports.

    Analysis: The announcement that Green will start comes as more of a formality than anything. He averaged 38 minutes, 14.8 points, 9.3 rebounds, and 5.8 assists per game in the first four games before missing game five. With Andrew Bogut (knee) out for the remainder of the series, Green will likely see an uptick in minutes.

    Update: Green was assessed a Flagrant 1 foul for an incident in Friday's Game 4 win and will be suspended for Monday's Game 5 matchup with the Cavaliers, Marc J. Spears of ESPN.com reports.

    Analysis: Green entered the NBA Finals on thin ice after he accrued a Flagrant 2 foul during Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals series with the Thunder for a kick to the groin of Steven Adams, and the league office determined that the All-Star's actions Friday warranted additional discipline. Though he wasn't charged with a flagrant in the contest, Green got tangled up with the Cavs' LeBron James late in the fourth quarter and appeared to hit James in the groin before the two players exchanged words in heated fashion. James was retroactively assessed a technical foul by the league, but Green's absence for a potential clinching Game 5 is obviously the costlier of the two punishments handed down. It's unclear how coach Steve Kerr will adjust his lineup for Game 5, but with Green out of the mix, it seems likely that the Warriors will utilize more Andrew Bogut at center, while wings like Harrison Barnes and Andre Iguodala may be forced to see more time at power forward.

    Injury: YES

  • Jun 11 2016, 02:31 AM

    Update: Green supplied nine points (2-9 FG, 5-8 FT), 12 rebounds, four assists, two steals and three blocks over 42 minute during Friday's 108-97 victory over the Cavaliers in Game 4 of the NBA Finals. He also got involved in a fracas with Cleveland's LeBron James late in the fourth quarter that the league will reviewing.

    Analysis: The Warriors were plus-14 with the mercurial forward on the floor, and as usual, he kept things interesting with yet another controversial low blow. Green got tangled up with James with less than three minutes remaining and appeared to make contact with his groin. The two subsequently fought for a rebound and then had to be separated after exchanging words. If the league determines that the infraction qualifies as a flagrant foul, it would earn Green an automatic suspension for Game 5. His absence would certainly impact the Warriors down low, as he managed double-digit boards for the second time in the series' first four games, despite shooting under 30 percent for the second straight contest. The four-year pro has also come up empty on his last eight tries from beyond the arc over the last two games.

    Update: Green scored a game-high 28 points (11-20 FG, 5-8 3Pt, 1-1 FT) to go along with seven rebounds, five assists and one steal in Sunday's 110-77 Game 2 win over the Cavaliers.

    Analysis: Green became an honorary Splash Brother on Sunday, knocking down a team-high five three-pointers on a night when Stephen Curry was limited by foul trouble. Unlike Game 1 when both Curry and Klay Thompson were oddly cool from the field, the Warriors had all pistons firing in this one, and it was Green who was at the center of the team's offensive outburst. When he wasn't killing the Cavs with his shooting, Green was part of the crew that limited LeBron James to 7-of-17 shooting while forcing him to commit seven turnovers.

    Update: Green registered 16 points (5-11 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 4-4 FT), 11 rebounds, seven assists, four steals and a block over 40 minutes during Thursday's 104-89 victory over the Cavaliers in Game 1 of the NBA Finals.

    Analysis: It was a vintage, stat sheet-stuffing performance from the dynamic forward, who stepped up significantly in the wake of the rare struggles experienced by both Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson. With the Cavs clearly focused on slowing down the vaunted Splash Brothers, Green provided a fourth straight double-digit scoring performance, and hauled in double-digit boards for the fourth time in the last five postseason games. He even provided some key long-range contributions, draining a pair of three-pointers for the second time in the last three contests. The 26-year-old's shooting was better Thursday than at any time since Game 1 of the conference finals versus the Thunder, and continued success in this area is likely to play a key role in the Warriors' quest for a second straight NBA title.

    Update: Green registered 12 points (4-10 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 2-4 FT), 12 rebounds, six assists, three steals and a block over 43 minutes during Saturday's 108-101 defeat of the Thunder in Game 6 of the Western Conference finals.

    Analysis: The four-year veteran tallied his second consecutive double-double, and third straight game with double-digit boards. He'll undoubtedly once again be a key component of the offense in Monday's pivotal Game 7, but will need to be mindful of the whistle. After amassing four fouls in Game 5, Green was one away from an early exit in Game 6.

    Update: Green posted 11 points (4-10 FG, 3-3 FT), 13 rebounds, four assists, four blocks and a steal over 39 minutes during Thursday's 120-111 victory over the Thunder in Game 5 of the Western Conference finals.

    Analysis: The four-year veteran bounced back after two forgettable performances in the blowout defeats in Game 3 and 4. Green had shot only 12.5 percent (2-for-16) over that span, netting only six points apiece in the two contests. Thursday's performance did put him back into double digits scoring-wise for the third game in the series, and his four blocks were the most in that category since Game 4 of the semifinals versus the Blazers. Green's double-double was also the first of the series, after he accomplished the feat in three games versus Portland in the previous round. The 26-year-old is averaging 11.2 points, 8.2 rebounds, 4.0 assists, 1.8 blocks and 1.4 steals over the five contests versus the Thunder.

    Update: Green was limited to six points (1-7 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 4-4 FT) and turned the ball over six times in Tuesday's 118-94 loss to the Thunder in Game 4 of the series. He also finished with 11 rebounds, three steals, two assists and one blocked shot in 38 minutes.

    Analysis: The combustible Green was put on notice after his Flagrant 1 foul in Sunday's Game 3 loss was upgraded to Flagrant 2, meaning one more will result in a one-game suspension. With that possibility looming, Green bottled up his emotions -- both the joy and the frustration -- and was no longer the game-changing force Tuesday that we witnessed all season. Over the last two games, Green has shot 2-of-16 from the field with 12 points and 10 turnovers.

    Update: Green's flagrant foul during Game 3 has been upgraded to a Flagrant 2, but he will not be suspended for Game 4 against the Thunder on Tuesday, Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical reports.

    Analysis: While driving to the hoop during Game 3, Green kicked his leg out and hit the Thunder's Steven Adams in the groin, which then resulted in Green being assessed a Flagrant 1 foul. The league reviewed the call overnight and has come to the decision that it would only require a fine and an upgrade to a Flagrant 2 foul. However, the upgrade to a Flagrant 2 means Green is one away from receiving a one-game suspension, so he'll be on thin ice moving forward. Green should remain in the starting lineup for Game 4 on Tuesday and will be without any restrictions.

    Injury: NO

    Update: Green finished Sunday's 133-105 Game 3 loss to the Thunder with six points (1-9 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 4-4 FT) to go with four rebounds, three assists, one steal and four turnovers across 32 minutes. He was also assessed a Flagrant 1 foul during the contest, which the league will review, the San Jose Mercury News reports. The NBA will make a decision prior to Game 4 on Tuesday.

    Analysis: Midway through the first half, when Green was fouled on a drive to the basket, he kicked out his leg while following through with his drive and hit the Thunder's Steven Adams in the groin. Adams was in obvious pain at what could be perceived as an intentional kick, despite Green's protestations that it wasn't. The league will take a look at the play from every angle available and could impose a fine and/or a suspension. Green's flagrant foul was but one reason Sunday marked his worst game of the postseason, and the Warriors now find themselves in a 2-1 series deficit heading into Game 4.

    Update: Green (ankle) played 40 minutes in Monday's Game 1 loss to the Thunder, scoring 23 points (9-20 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 5-9 FT) to go along with five rebounds, four assists, two blocked shots and one steal.

    Analysis: Green had suffered the ankle injury during the final game of the second-round series with the Trail Blazers, but his availability was never in any doubt for Monday's Game 1. While the stat line looks normal, Green was on the court when the Warriors let the game slip away over the final 18 minutes. Whether it was ill-advised shots early in the shot clock or pressing too hard to make up a two- or three-possession deficit, Green and his mates 'have to be better at being us,' as Stephen Curry so pithily put it to the San Jose Mercury News.

    Update: Green (ankle) participated in Friday's practice, The San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Analysis: Green tweaked his left ankle during Wednesday's series-clinching win over the Blazers, but the ailment didn't prevent him from finishing that contest nor practicing Friday. Although it's somewhat concerning that Green admitted to hurting the same ankle a few times during the playoffs already, his involvement in Friday's practice suggests he should be fine in time to start Monday's Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals versus the Thunder.

    Update: Green suffered a left ankle injury in the third quarter of Wednesday's 125-121 Game 5 win over the Trail Blazers, the San Jose Mercury News reports. He would remain in the game and finished the night with 13 points (2-7 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 8-10 FT) to go with 11 rebounds, six assists, two steals and a blocked shot in 36 minutes.

    Analysis: Green sustained the injury when he was fouled on a drive to the basket, and ultimately needed to get his ankle taped up in the locker room. After testing things out on the sideline, Green was cleared to return and ended in the night with a typically full stat line. Green added after the game that he's hurt the same ankle a few times during the postseason, so he should benefit from some downtime with the Warriors clinching the series and now awaiting the winner of the Spurs and Thunder in the Western Conference Finals. The Thunder currently hold a 3-2 series lead, but should the Spurs win Thursday and force a Game 7, the Warriors would be off the schedule until May 18.

    Update: Green scored a team-high 37 points (13-23 FG, 8-12 3Pt, 3-6 FT) with nine rebounds, eight assists, one steal and one blocked shot in Saturday's loss to the Trail Blazers in Game 3 of their second-round playoff series.

    Analysis: The Warriors were without Stephen Curry (knee) for a fourth straight game and needed its supporting players to take up the scoring burden. Green and Klay Thompson (35 points) did just that, but Green, who finished at minus-2, was not pleased with his effort, calling himself out for shoddy defense. If Curry returns for Game 4 on Monday, Green can focus more on his defense.

  • May 04 2016, 09:00 AM

    Update: Green compiled 17 points (7-20 FG, 0-5 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 14 rebounds, seven assists, four blocks, and a steal across 41 minutes in Tuesday's 110-99 win over the Trail Blazers in Game 2 of the series.

    Analysis: The Warriors trailed for most of the game and by 11 points heading into the third quarter, but thanks to the efforts from Green and company, the Warriors ended up cruising to an 11-point win after a 34-12 fourth quarter. Green has stepped up his play to an even more spectacular level than usual with Stephen Curry (knee) sidelined for the last three games, averaging 18.3 points, 12 rebounds, 8.7 assists, and three blocks across 36.3 minutes, all of which are higher than his marks during the regular season.

    Update: Green posted 15 points (5-9 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 3-4 FT), nine rebounds, eight assists, two blocks, and one steal in 31 minutes during the Warriors' 114-81 win over the Rockets in Wednesday's Game 5.

    Analysis: Green helped the Warriors close out the Rockets in convincing fashion despite Stephen Curry (knee) being sidelined. This was easily Green's best game of the series, as he had mostly been struggling with his shot prior to the second half of Sunday's Game 4. Green will continue to take on a larger burden as a scorer and distributor while the reigning MVP remains out, and it's unclear how soon Curry will be able to return.
