Golden State Warriors

Draymond Green would play with a broken wrist

Warriors center Draymond Green (30) reacts to a foul called on him against the Pelicans during the third quarter of the game on January 16, 2019 at Oracle Arena in Oakland, California.

Earlier this season, he suffered a left ankle sprain thanks to stepping on DeMarcus Cousins’ foot.

Even after he took a “pretty good whack” on it in Game 3 of the Golden State Warriors’ first-round playoff series against the Los Angeles Clippers, he refused to sit.

As reported by Marcus Thompson of The Athletic , Green was approached about his weight by general manager Bob Myers after the All-Star break, but he had already decided to commit himself to getting leaner.

With a self-imposed deadline of March 6, he had a nutritionist plan his diet, a chef prepare his meals and intensified his workouts to up his conditioning.

His 6.5 rebounds are his lowest postseason average since 2012-13, but his 1.8 blocks per game tie a career playoff high.
