On Friday morning, the Warriors announced that Draymond Green is going to play on Friday night against the Pelicans.

After shootaround, Draymond talked about the left knee strain he sustained on Tuesday.

"It didn't lock up. I tweaked it. I was concerned. I honestly thought it was my meniscus. It was a big relief," Draymond told reporters in New Orleans. "The next day when I woke up, the pain was a little better.

"As that day went on -- once I got the MRI, I got it early - -and then I went and got treatment and it felt a lot better.

"I hadn't even got the results but I was pretty confident at that point."

Draymond sustained the injury late in the third quarter against Houston and did not play in the fourth quarter.

He registered nine points, 13 rebounds and 11 assists before exiting.
