Warriors Get Encouraging Update on Injured Star

The Golden State Warriors received a massive update on the status of injured forward Draymond Green. According to Warriors head coach Steve Kerr, Green's MRI on his knee came back clean. The four-time NBA champ participated in practice and has been upgraded to "probable" for Tuesday's game versus Damian Lillard and the Portland Trail Blazers.

Green has missed Golden State's last two games to a right knee contusion. He reportedly had a "setback," according to Steve Kerr, which is why he missed Sunday's game versus the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Despite the former Defensive Player of the Year's absence, the Warriors still went 2-0 in those games, thanks to a couple of huge performances from Klay Thompson.

The defending champs are also dealing with injuries to Stephen Curry, who is recovering from a leg injury. Curry is reportedly in line for a re-evaluation this Wednesday and for sure, Warriors fans are anxiously waiting whether the reigning Finals MVP is on his way back to the court soon. 

Meanwhile, forward Andrew Wiggins has been away from the team since the All-Star break due to a personal matter and will remain out on Tuesday versus Portland.

Golden State is currently 7th in the bloodbath that is the Western Conference standings with a 31-30 record. Getting Green back should be a step in the right direction as the reigning champions look to right the ship ahead of the final stretch of the regular season.
