OAKLAND -- Draymond Green's sore left knee officially reached "lingering" status Sunday.
He didn't participate in the open practice conducted by the Warriors at Oracle Arena on Sunday, and he will not be in the lineup or otherwise available to play Monday night when they face the Phoenix Suns in a preseason game Monday night.
Green's knee flared up after the preseason opener Sept. 29. Though an MRI test was clean, he didn't play in the second preseason game Friday night in Seattle, and he has gone eight days without participating in practice.
Warriors coach Steve Kerr said Green is "working his way back," and there is hope that he will be able to participate in the team's shootaround Monday morning or at practice Tuesday.
"We'd like to get him in the game Wednesday," Kerr said.
The Warriors travel to Las Vegas on Tuesday afternoon after practice and are scheduled to face the Lakers on Wednesday at T-Mobile Arena.
