More on Danny Green Injury

Although Danny Green said he is ready to play in Wednesday night’s outing against the Kings, Spurs coach Gregg Popovich suggested the shooting guard’s status would be a game-time decision. Asked if Green was good to go after the Spurs listed him as questionable with a sore groin, Popovich said, “I think so, but I’m not sure yet.” Popovich kept Green on the bench for the second half of Monday’s win over Miami after he suffered the injury in the first half.

Danny Green’s quest to bounce back from last season’s sub-par shooting performance has been put on hold due to a minor injury. A bruised left thigh forced the Spurs’ starting shooting guard to sit out the first training camp practice Tuesday morning and also an evening session. Green suffered the injury during open-gym workouts last week, a team spokesman said. Although it’s not considered serious, the ailment is expected to sideline him for a few days.

Dennis Schroder joining Lakers midweek?

Ham said he will still try out different lineups before the regular season opens Oct. 18 on the road against Golden State. Lonnie Walker (ankle) went through a full-contact practice for the first time all camp on Saturday. Troy Brown Jr. remains limited because of his back. And Dennis Schroder, who has missed all of camp thus far after signing as a free agent last month, is expected to join the team as soon as midweek in Las Vegas after sorting out a visa issue that was keeping him in his native Germany.
New coach Darvin Ham has used James, Davis and Westbrook in his preferred starting five during camp, along with guard Kendrick Nunn and center Damian Jones. He is trying to maximize the potential of the three max players with a combined 35 All-Star appearances between them. “We have a three-man package, actually a playcall, that they’re going thrive in and it involves all three of them,” Ham said. “I look forward to that being at a very, very high level. And there’s different nuances in it that they can play around with.
In order to improve as a catch-and-shoot player, one has to be able to move well without the ball. Luckily for Harris and the Sixers, he had a crash course in that type of role after the break in 2022. “I think last year really helped,” Rivers added. “The second half of last year, the last 15 games, and through the playoffs, I thought he really bought into who needs to be.”
