Draymond Green says leg is sore but he will be fine
Draymond Green says his leg injury will not be an issue moving forward.
Green hurt his leg during the fourth quarter of the Golden State Warriors’ home win over the Utah Jazz in Game 2 of their playoff series on Thursday night. He was driving to the basket for a layup with under eight minutes left in the game but tumbled after getting tangled with Rudy Gobert. He tried to get up and was hobbling but fell to the court.

Green was treated on the court, went into the locker room, and then came back to the game.
After the 115-104 win, Green said his leg was sore but downplayed its severity.
“Little sore right now but I’ll be fine,” Green said in a postgame interview with ESPN. “(I will) ice it tonight. I’ll probably take some anti-inflammatories so it doesn’t swell up on the plane. I’ll be fine moving forward.”
This is good news for the Warriors. Green was pretty spectacular in Game 2. He scored 21 points on 7-of-13 shooting, including five 3-pointers made. He added 7 rebounds, 6 assists and 4 steals to complete the strong all-around effort.
