MRI on Draymond Green's knee come back negative

OAKLAND CA- OCTOBER 17 Jordan Bell #2 of the Golden State Warriors drives to the hoop against James Harden #13 of the Houston Rockets during their NBA game at ORACLE Arena

An MRI exam of Warriors forward Draymond Green's left knee on Friday (AEDT) showed no structural damage, according to reports. "I knew when I came down, I didn't feel a pop, but it was hurting really bad". He immediately began hobbling and rubbing his left knee.

An MRI on Green's injured knee came back negative.

"It was a big relief". I tweaked it. I was concerned. The reigning Defensive Player of the Year is the team's foundation on defense, not to mention a reliable playmaker on offense.

"We were not ready mentally to play that game, even when we weren't exhausted", Kerr said.

His status for Friday night's game against the New Orleans Pelicans is unknown at this time. "It's just about manning up and trying to stop them". Kevin Durant's baseline jumper at the end went in just too late and Golden State squandered a big lead on the night it received its championship rings. Omri Casspi is sitting this one out with a left ankle sprain.

Golden State expected to release results of the test Wednesday or early Thursday prior to departing for a game Friday at New Orleans.

After facing the Pelicans, the Warriors visit the Memphis Grizzlies on Saturday and the Dallas Mavericks on Monday.
