Warriors F Draymond Green appeared on the "All the Smoke" podcast and stated, "If I can get that back to above 36 percent -- possibly shoot 40 percent, which I know I'm more than capable of -- the league is in trouble again if I can do that. That's my goal."
Green's been battling several injuries this season but shared more details on a hip injury from 2018 that caused him to "restructure" his shooting mechanics - which he is admittingly still working through. Dray looks poised for a fantasy resurgence next season and having Steph Curry and Klay Thompson back will certainly elevate his chances.
Warriors head coach Steve Kerr joined the "The TK Show" podcast with Tim Kawakami of The Athletic and said, "I think the league has changed pretty dramatically, and I can see him playing more minutes at the five. I don't think there would be any problem with that."
Kerr delivered an early glimpse of his ideal lineup for next season while also raving about the progression of their 2019 second round draft pick, Eric Paschall. Make no mistake, Green's underwhelmed this year but a move to center will offer some additional opportunities offensively with Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, Andrew Wiggins, and Eric Paschall on the floor. Green's averaging 28.4 minutes per game on the season but expect that number to hover over 30 when the Warriors are back at full strength next season. With the NBA season in limbo, fantasy owners shouldn't expect much from Green even if play resumes.
Draymond Green (knee) has been declared out for Thursday's contest against the Brooklyn Nets.
This marks the seventh consecutive game that Green has missed due to his troublesome left knee. Look for Eric Paschall to continue his surge in playing time without Green in the lineup.
Draymond Green (knee) has been ruled out of Tuesday's game due to knee soreness.
After Tuesday, Green will have missed eight of the last nine games as the Warriors continue to exercise caution with their stars due to their losing record this season. Eric Paschall has filled in admirably in Green's absence so far this season and should continue to be a strong source of points and rebounds.
NBA.com is reporting that the Warriors have ruled out Draymond Green for Saturday’s contest with the Sixers due to a sore knee.
With Draymond Green out once again, look for Eric Paschall to get some extra playing time to help compensate the lack of depth in the position. Andrew Wiggins and Marquese Chriss will shoulder the scoring load with Stephen Curry also sitting out due to an illness.
