HOUSTON — Draymond Green is expected to make his season debut against the Houston Rockets on Sunday, he told reporters.
Green missed the first two games recovering from a left ankle sprain that sidelined him for all of training camp and preseason. The 33-year-old sprained his ankle during a pickup game a few days before training camp began on Oct. 2.
Meanwhile, Steph Curry is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game with left foot soreness on the NBA’s official injury report. Jonathan Kuminga is also listed as questionable for Sunday’s game with left foot soreness.
Green has been taking part in 5-on-5 scrimmages and ramping up into game-playing condition in recent days. He told reporters in Sacramento that he plans to play both games in an upcoming back-to-back against the Rockets and New Orleans Pelicans on Monday.
Green missed the Warriors’ season opener last Tuesday for the first time since 2020-21 season, which he missed because of right foot soreness.
