NBA playoffs 2019: Warriors’ Draymond Green dealing with sore wrist

Draymond Green continues to deal with a sore wrist.

The 29-year-old forward was seen wearing a splint on his right hand after the Warriors’ Game 4 victory over the Clippers last weekend. Green later underwent an MRI and said Wednesday he plans to play through the pain.

“Still sore,” Green said, via NBC Sports Bay Area. “But it is what it is. If the MRI said it was broken, by the way, I was still going to play, so it doesn’t matter.”

Green said he re-aggravated the injury earlier in the series.

“It’s been messed up for a while,” Green said. “But in the beginning of Game 3 I got a pretty good whack on it. … It’s been bothering me a lot ever since but it’s all good.

“I’m on the floor so I’m not one to really talk about when something is affecting. When you’re out there, you’re out there. So, it’s all good.”

Green is averaging 12.3 points, 7.8 assists and 6.5 rebounds through Golden State’s first four postseason games. He’s shooting 45.2% from the field and just 21.4% from 3-point range.

“I think playing for so long you get used to it,” Green said. “You’re never 100%. You learn to play through pain, especially going through an 82 game season, you definitely learn to play through pain.” 

The Warriors will have a chance to close out their series against the Clippers in Game 5 on Wednesday at Oracle Arena.
