Golden State Warriors star forward Draymond Green will be out at least two more weeks after evaluations indicated that the soreness in his left calf is tied to “the involvement of a disc in his lower back.”
Green left last Sunday’s win over the Cleveland Cavaliers early because of a sore left calf. He was on the court for the opening tip to honor Klay Thompson‘s return but exited moments after and has missed the past three games.
The Warriors said Green underwent an MRI the night of that game and has been evaluated by several specialists throughout the week.
“Draymond will receive physical therapy in the coming days and will continue to be monitored by the team’s medical and training staff,” the Warriors said in a statement. “He will be re-evaluated in two weeks.”
Green, 31, has had a resurgent season for the Warriors, averaging 7.9 points, 7.6 rebounds and 7.4 assists while shooting a career-high 53.7% from the field.
