Draymond Green already practicing after injury last night


After suffering an ankle injury in a loss against Houston Rockets on Sunday (Manila time), Golden State Warriors star Draymond Green has been spotted practicing and actively playing hoops in a video posted in Twitter by reporter Mark Medina.

Coach Steve Kerr said that Green listed himself as “probable” to play against the Charlotte Hornets on Tuesday (Manila time).

According to a tweet from Anthony Slater of The Athletic, “Draymond Green’s ankle injury isn’t serious. Getting shots up after the Warriors late night practice in Charlotte right now. Sounds like there’s a chance he may even play tomorrow.”

This season, Green has already missed 13 games and saw limited action in two others due to an injured toe in his right foot. The 28-year-old also sat for three exhibition games because of a sprained left knee. This raised some questions for his season-long durability, but coach Kerr said that every player has different circumstances and that the Warriors will treat its players with care.

Though GSW sits on a comfortable first spot in the Western Conference, they would still need healthy players as they battle in the playoffs. (Janiel Abby Toralba)
