Draymond Green has a sprained left ankle and is day to day, according to the Warriors.

Harrison Barnes and Marreese Speights saw the bulk of the minutes backing up forwards David Lee and Andre Iguodala. Barnes had 13 points in 27 minutes and Speights added seven points in 14 minutes. Expect the trend to continue on Tuesday night against the Milwaukee Bucks, should Green be unable to play.
Green was selected by the Warriors in the second round of the 2012 draft out of Michigan. Last season he played in 79 games and averaged 2.9 points and 3.3 rebounds per game. In 36 games this season, his minutes have increased to nearly 20 per game. His production has increased as well to 4.8 points and 4.4 rebounds per game, although he is shooting only 38.2 percent from the floor and 52.6 percent from the free throw line. Green must improve in those areas if he wants to continue to see significant minutes.
