Draymond Green exits Golden State Warriors’ win over Minnesota Timberwolves due to thigh contusion


SAN FRANCISCO — Warriors forward Draymond Green suffered a right thigh contusion in the third quarter of Wednesday’s game against the Minnesota Timberwolves and was ruled out for the rest of Golden State’s 123-110 win.

Green’s injury occurred with 6:45 left in the quarter when he went up for a shot under the rim over the Timberwolves’ Jaden McDaniels. Green initially appeared to knock knees with McDaniels and stayed in for a few more moments before being taken out of the game and going back to the locker room to get checked out.

Green, who has been the defensive engine behind the Warriors’ 10-1 start to the season, scored seven points, dished out six assists and grabbed five rebounds in 21 minutes before leaving the game.
