Golden State Warriors Forward Draymond Green has been ruled out for Saturday's match against Mavericks in Dallas because of a long-lasting teardrop.
Green missed two matches last week against Milwaukee Bucks and Brooklyn Nets because of the ruined high and right foot that has "long-lasting tenderness".
Draymond Greens words – both on Thursday and weeks before Monday's incident with Kevin Durant – offer a window on how Golden State plans to approach this season.
While Kevin Durant could quickly turn off a reporter's question about his event with Draymond Green, Warrior's coach Steve Kerr confirmed that the team had "smashed spiritually" after a tumultuous week.
He was suspended for Tuesday's victory over Atlanta Hawks to "do harm to the team" after a verbal change with team mate Kevin Durant during and after a Monday night for LA Clippers.
In Greens return from the suspension, the Warriors blew out of Houston Rockets 107-86 on Thursday night. It was their worst performance for the season.
Green will join Stephen Curry (left lustestam) on the sideline. The warriors had already announced on Wednesday that Curry would not play under the three games on their current trip to Texas.
