Warriors’ Draymond Green speaks out on scary wrist injury vs. Clippers

Draymond Green Warriors wrist injury

Draymond Green took a tumble in the third quarter that had Golden State Warriors fans holding their breath. He drove the ball hard to the basket and landed awkwardly, using his right hand to cushion the fall.

The Warriors star was seen grimacing moments after it had happened. He did manage to take his free throws though, so it didn’t seem like much of an issue until he was forced to get it checked in the locker room.

When asked on the injury in question, Draymond Green seemed more concerned with the fact that he was missing free throws rather than being in any actual pain.

Via The Athletic’s Anthony Slater:

“Yeah, I kind of hurt my hand,” admitted the Warriors star. “But that’s not why I was missing free throws. … Hopefully these coaches see this and start doing the Hack-a-Draymond so I can get some free points.”

Draymond Green missed seven free throws on the night for Golden State. Each one proved to be crucial give than they won by two points, and traded baskets and the lead throughout the contest’s finals minutes. Asked about the wrist again after his digression, Green confirmed it was nothing while once again reverting the conversation to free throws.

“It hurt, but it’s fine. That wasn’t why I was missing those f–ing free throws.”

The Warriors still got the W at the end of the day, thanks to Stephen Curry deciding not to miss on the evening. But hopefully Draymond Green’s wrist stays fine so that he can start sinking his foul shots.
