Another injury setback for Luke Walton and the Golden State Warriors. The Warriors suffered their second defeat of the season versus the Dallas Mavericks late December without injured MVP Stephen Curry. Now, the Warriors will have to rest in-form forward Draymond Green.
Green is injured and worn out. The Warriors require to rest his battered lower part of the body, at least for the coming Denver game.
“Yeah, I look forward to having that talk with him,” Walton revealed with a smile on Tuesday.
The Warriors will face the Denver Nuggets on Wednesday in the next game. It’s certain that Green is going to be out in that game. Well, he is also questionable for Thursday night’s game against the Los Angeles Lakers in the Oracle Arena.
Neither Walton nor the Warriors made convincing statements regarding the forward’s fitness level.
“He’s one of the guys who’s actually played heavy minutes,” Walton added. “That kind of started when Harrison (Barnes) went down, playing in the high 30s. So now that we have Harrison back, (Green) is definitely a guy we can look at giving a little bit of time off.”
Sources point that the Warriors camp will play the next two games without Draymond Green.
