Warriors’ Draymond Green will miss next two games as he works on conditioning

Warriors forward Draymond Green will not make his season debut until after the team returns from the current four-game trip, according to head coach Steve Kerr, and will not play in Tuesday’s game in Detroit.

He had been previously ruled out for today’s game in Chicago.

Having missed all of training and the preseason because of a positive coronavirus test, Green was sidelined for the first two regular-season games with the foot injury, though it’s not considered serious. Green, 30, participated in practices in Milwaukee and Chicago, but the Warriors will hold him out as he continues to work on his conditioning over the next four-to-five days before playing in a game.

“Draymond got through the scrimmage really well yesterday, and he felt good,” Kerr said before today’s game against the Bulls. “We just felt that, from a conditioning standpoint, it made more sense to give him the next two games off.”
