Draymond Green Probable for Warriors-Hornets Game Despite Ankle Sprain

It appears Draymond Green will be good to go.

The Warriors forward sprained his left ankle during a horrid home loss to the Rockets, but coach Steve Kerr said Green considers himself probable to play Monday night against the Hornets.

And judging by the video from Sunday night's practice in Charlotte, Green is on target.

Green initially sprained the ankle during the first quarter Saturday and attempted to gut through it, but he wasn't his usual productive self. He had just four points, four rebounds and three assists in 24 minutes, and left in the fourth quarter after accidently stepping on teammate DeMarcus Cousins with the bad foot.

If Green indeed plays to open the Warriors' four-game road trip, it would save Kerr some trouble. As NBC Sports Bay Area's Monte Poole pointed out after Saturday's game, Kerr would have to start Andre Igoudala, Jordan Bell, Jonas Jerebko or Alfonzo McKinnie in Green's place, depending on matchups. Now the Warriors can maintain their five-star lineup as they try to rebound from a humbling defeat.
