Draymond Green’s absence from the Warriors could extend into the month of February.

Green has been out since Jan. 6, save for the seven seconds he played in Klay Thompson’s debut to retake the floor with his teammate for the first time in two years.

Here’s everything we know about Green’s injury and how long he may be sidelined.

What is Draymond Green’s injury?

Green’s left calf tightened up on him during warmups ahead of Thompson’s return against the Cavaliers on Jan. 6. Green had already missed the Warriors’ previous game, and he has now missed the team’s last 10 games.

On Jan. 16, the Warriors announced that several evaluations revealed that Green’s calf injury is tied to the involvement of a disc in his lower back. Per the NBA’s official injury report, Green has an injury in the left L5-S1 disc.

How long will Draymond Green be out?

With the Jan. 16 update stating that Green will be re-evaluated in two weeks, the earliest he could return would be on Monday, Jan. 31 against the Rockets.

On Tuesday, Jan. 25, The Undefeated’s Marc J. Spears appeared on San Francisco’s KNBR, where he shared that he spoke with Draymond and added that “I’m kind of hearing grumblings that there is no light at the end of the tunnel right now, which certainly is a scary thing for Draymond and the Warriors.”
