Report: Golden State Warriors upgrade Draymond Green (knee) to probable

Associated Press and staff reports

Draymond Green has been upgraded to probable for Friday’s game in New Orleans, according to a report from The Mercury News on Thursday evening.

The Warriors announced earlier that Green had no structural damage in his injured left knee. The All-Star traveled with the team for its current three-game road trip and went through a full practice on Thursday.

Green got hurt in the closing seconds of the third quarter of Tuesday’s season-opening 122-121 home loss to Houston when he drove left to the basket, took an off-balanced shot and landed awkwardly. He came up hobbling and grabbing at his knee.

Golden State missed his presence down the stretch and Green finished just shy of a triple-double with nine points, 13 assists and 11 rebounds.
