Game Thread - Draymond Green: All Star (but he's not playing); no Porter tonight against Kings
De'Aaron Fox questionable, Bagley out for Kings
The Golden State Warriors found out just before tonight’s game that they have three players selected to this year’s All Star game. Unfortunately, due to his ongoing back injury, Green won’t play — but the honor is nice, all the same.
The silver lining here is that Green remains optimistic. He doesn’t believe that surgery will be required, and is hoping to be back after the break. By missing the All Star game, Green opens up the court for one of the league’s many “snubbed” players to get in as an injury replacement. Plenty of worth names out there (just like every year), so it will be interesting to see who gets the nod.
The only major injury update ahead of the game is that Otto Porter’s status was changed today from questionable to out.
Time for some more short-handed fun!
