The injuries keep piling up for the Warriors.
Draymond Green had a bandage on his left hand following the Warriors’ 127-110 loss to the San Antonio Spurs Friday for what he said was ligament damage.
This, on the heels of playing their first game without guard Stephen Curry, who will miss at least three months as he recovers from surgery on his left hand.
The Warriors will play the second game of a back-to-back set against the Charlotte Hornets Saturday, and Green’s status is unclear.

“I don’t know, we’ll see. It’s pretty sore,” Green said. “I couldn’t grip the ball […] probably since the second quarter.”
Green has already dealt with minor injuries to his elbow and back this season, though neither has forced him to miss time. Prior to the game, Warriors head coach Steve Kerr said he plans to manage Green’s minutes and availability going forward.
“The one thing we won’t do is run him into the ground. We have to maintain a good schedule with Draymond minutes-wise and games-wise,” Kerr said. “If he’s banged up, we should make sure we take care of him.”
