Mark Medina: Some Warriors injury updates for tomorrow vs. Kings: Stephen Curry (right hand contusion) is questionable, Kevin Durant (sprained left ankle) is questionable. Draymond Green (right foot contusion) is questionable.
Chris Haynes: Golden State forwards Draymond Green (knee) and Andre Iguodala (back) will both play tonight against New Orleans.
Green did not participate in Wednesday’s practice, but Warriors coach Steve Kerr didn’t seem too worried. “He looked OK,” Kerr siad. “I don’t think it’s serious.”
Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green was diagnosed with a left knee strain and missed the final quarter of Tuesday night's 122-121 loss to the Houston Rockets. Toward the end of the third quarter, Green was fouled on a running jumper and landed awkwardly. He immediately began hobbling and rubbing his left knee.
Rosalyn Gold-Onwude: Mike Brown says "in my mind he's playing" about Draymond Green status for Game 3.
Marc J. Spears: The Warriors say forward Draymond Green (left knee tweak) is probable for Game 3 tomorrow at Utah.
Connor Letourneau: Draymond Green (left shoulder contusion) is probable for tomorrow's game. Shaun Livingston (mid-back strain) is questionable.
Marc J. Spears: Warriors forward told The Undefeated about his left ankle contusion: "I'll be fine. It's pretty sore right now" and "it's day-to-day." Green
Warriors forward Draymond Green said Thursday the left ankle he tweaked in Game 5 of the Western Conference semifinals was improving. “It feels a lot better, a lot better than it did last night,” Green told KNBR. “Just really been icing, getting a massage, and you’re really just normal things that it takes to get it back healthy and get ready to go for Monday.”

Fox 32 Chicago Sports: Giannis on playing for the #Bulls someday tonight on The Sports Zone on Fox 32 Chicago. @fox32news @foxkickoff @LouCanellis @CassieCarlsonTV @Giannis_An34
“I think anyone asked that question who plays basketball, if he said no, he’d be a liar. It’s a team that won multiple championships, a team with one of the greatest players, if not the greatest player to ever play this game. It’s a no-brainer, everybody would love to play for Chicago. Down the line, you never know. You never know how life brings it. Maybe I play for Chicago,” Antetokounmpo said. “But right now, I’m committed to Milwaukee.”
Dave McMenamin: The L.A. Clippers will tip off their regular season against the Los Angeles Lakers on Oct. 20, a source told ESPN, in what will be a designated ‘road’ game for LAC. The Clippers currently have a seven-game winning streak versus their Crypto.com Arena cohabitants
Clippers coach Tyronn Lue is unbeaten in seven games against the Lakers since taking over two seasons ago, while it will be Lakers coach Darvin Ham’s first meeting of arena tenants since his hiring in May. The game will be the Clippers’ season opener, while the Lakers will open two days earlier, on Oct. 18, at defending champion Golden State, according to a person with knowledge of the schedule.
Duane Rankin: #Suns at #Nuggets Christmas Day, sources confirm to @azcentral. Phoenix 2-1 vs. Denver last season, winning last two. Won at Denver 140-130 Mar. 24 for 60th win.

On Sunday, Durant sent a tweet hinting that he’s going to delete his account on the platform amid the talks that it is ruining his legacy. However, he has since deleted the post. What’s interesting is Kevin Durant sent it out after people kept criticizing him for being the culprit in the current state of the player empowerment era in the NBA. A lot of players seem to be abusing that power to get out of situations they don’t like despite signing their contracts and teams paying them tons of money.
