Green joins Andrew Wiggins, Jordan Poole and Damion Lee as Warriors rotation players in the league’s protocols. The defensive stalwart is vaccinated, and can test out of the protocols with two negative results 24 hours apart. Green did play in Saturday’s Christmas Day game against the Suns, so this could be a problem for the league if he actually registered a positive test the day after the game.
With Green potentially sidelined, look for Nemanja Bjelica to get more minutes at the power forward spot. Rookie Jonathan Kuminga is also getting minutes, so he could slide into that spot as well. Klay Thompson and James Wiseman are slowly working their way back towards playing, so the Warriors do have some depth coming back as key players enter protocols.
