The Golden State Warriors will reportedly be without Draymond Green for at least the next two games due to a torn ligament in his left finger, according to The Athletic's Anthony Slater.

With so many injuries mounting, the Warriors may take it easy on the major injuries to Thompson and Curry to ensure that they're healthy next year and swallow the pill of a losing record this season. "You want to bring along rookies as best you can and we're just putting so much on their plate, but we have no choice with all the injuries", Kerr said.

"It's pretty sore", Green told reporters after the game.

Golden State, which remained winless in three home games, got no closer than nine in the fourth quarter.

Mills, who starred in college for Saint Mary's in nearby Moraga, California, hit six of his nine 3-point attempts and finished three points shy of his career high of 34 points.

The Spurs took control in the third period, scoring 40 points and taking a 97-86 lead.

I mean, of course, they are right? With the Warriors reeling, I think the Spurs will have a wider margin of victory than oddsmakers are predicting. "You've got to be in that mindset".

Patty Mills has been an offensive spark plug off the bench for Gregg Popovich since joining the franchise for the 2011-12 season, although on this night, he looked more like the Mills we are used to seeing in the green and gold of Australia.

It's far from the start Warriors fans would have hoped for in the first season across the bridge in San Francisco, but it might be a good time to reset and reload for another launch at the playoffs in 2021. "Right now he's kind of the lone survivor".

He has indicated he wants to play for the US team at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, so Curry likely would prefer to play games before that. Team USA is playing an exhibition at Stanford on Saturday.

The Warriors said the surgery was performed by Dr Steven Shin at the Cedars-Sinai Kerlan-Jobe Institute in Los Angeles.

The Warriors, who host the Spurs on Friday night with a back-to-back against Charlotte on Saturday, are also missing forward Kevon Looney.
