Draymond Green leaves Warriors game with ankle injury
Draymond Green left Saturday night’s Golden State Warriors-Houston Rockets game with an ankle injury.
Green stepped on teammate DeMarcus Cousins’ foot while playing defense early in the fourth quarter. He grabbed at his foot immediately and was in clear pain.

The Warriors announced a few minutes later that Green would be out for the rest of the game with a sprained ankle. The diagnosis was curious considering Green did not appear to twist his ankle when stepping on Cousins’ foot.
Green has missed time this season due to a foot/toe injury.
