The highly anticipated season opener between the Golden State Warriors and the Phoenix Suns will be missing a key figure, as Draymond Green, dealing with an ankle injury, will be sidelined for the game at Chase Center, San Francisco.
The news of Green’s absence comes just as former Warriors star Kevin Durant prepares to make an emotional return to the Bay Area for the first time since his departure in 2019.
According to a tweet by C.J. Holmes, Green’s absence is attributed to an ankle issue, preventing the star forward from participating in this significant matchup.
Green, who played a pivotal role in Durant’s departure from the Warriors, has since reconciled with the former teammate, setting aside any lingering tensions from their past differences.
