Draymond Green Out 4-6 Weeks With Sprained Ankle

Warriors Power Forward Draymond Green is expected to be out with an ankle sprain, according to Jason Dumas of KRON4 News. However, not much information is currently known. With Media Day on Monday, more information will come then.

Dumas add that it is not a high ankle sprain. The injury happened during a pickup game at the Chase Center.

I dodged a bullet and learned that today by the way it’s (positively) reacting,” Green told Marc J. Spears of Andscape (Twitter link). “Even with an MRI you don’t see the trend of it immediately. The swelling is down.”

The 4-6 weeks timeline means that Green will miss all of training camp and preseason. He’s also not likely to play on Opening night.

The injury is a tough break for the Warriors, who rely heavily on Green to lead their defense. His absence could mean a greater early-season role for Jonathan Kuminga and offseason addition Dario Saric. Injuries have become common for the 33-year-old who is preparing for his 12th NBA season.

This is a developing story. More to come.
