Golden State Warriors’ Draymond Green ‘questionable’ after leg injury

SAN FRANCISCO — The status of Golden State Warriors star Draymond Green is in question for their game Friday against the Chicago Bulls after he made an early exit Wednesday against the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Green suffered a “pretty nasty” contusion, or bruise, on his right quad, coach Steve Kerr said after the Warriors’ 123-110 win. He left the game midway through the third quarter and never returned.

“He got a quad contusion that was pretty nasty,” Kerr said. “He’s got some ice on it now. For now just call him questionable for Friday.”

Green appeared to tweak his leg while going up for an offensive rebound and putback shortly before exiting the game. Despite concerns about his knee, the Warriors confirmed the extent of the injury was a bad bruise on his upper leg.

When Green left the game, at the 6:29 mark of the third quarter, the Warriors held a commanding 79-63 lead over the Timberwolves. Minnesota cut Golden State’s advantage to as little as 5 points in the fourth quarter, but the Warriors held on for their sixth straight win.

Before leaving the game, Green contributed seven points — all on foul shots — along with six assists and five rebounds.

Whether Green is back for Friday’s contest against the Chicago Bulls is still in question, Kerr said.

Green was receiving treatment and unavailable to comment after the game Wednesday.
