Draymond Green is ready to rock once again.

Shams Charania of The Athletic reported Sunday that the Golden State Warriors star Green is expected to make his return to the court for the team Monday against the Grizzlies in Memphis. It will mark a return on Martin Luther King Jr. Day for Green, who has missed the last 16 games.

The former Defensive Player of the Year Green was suspended indefinitely by the league for striking Jusuf Nurkic in the head during a game on Dec. 12 (video here). He ended up serving an official suspension of 12 games before being reinstated (but missed four more due to a ramp-up period for his return to play).

Green has since spoken out about his suspension and made a noteworthy claim about it. While it remains to be seen how Green will behave upon his return to the court, the 18-21 Warriors certainly need him from a basketball standpoint (though they did manage to go 8-8 in the games Green missed).
