Draymond ruled out with illness for Dubs-Kings game

Draymond Green will not play Thursday in the Warriors' matchup against the Sacramento Kings, as the forward is feeling under the weather, coach Steve Kerr announced. 

Green was not at the team's shootaround earlier in the morning, either.

"Draymond will be out tonight, he's not feeling well," Kerr said to reporters during a pregame video conference. "He did not come to shootaround in the gym. ... He's just not feeling well at all right now."

Juan Toscano-Anderson will start in place of Green. Mychal Mulder, who was listed on the injury report with general illness as well, is probable.

Around 12 members of the Warriors' player and coaching staff received the COVID-19 vaccine Wednesday, though there is no way to tell whether Green's illness stemmed from side effects.

"Draymond just woke up and wasn't feeling well. Same with Mike," Kerr explained. "I know I'm feeling fine, most of us feel fine. So whether it's related or not, I don't know."

The team received the Johnson & Johnson single-dose vaccine, with Kerr noting his relief.

"I was very happy to receive mine," he said.

With Steph Curry still out with a tailbone contusion, Toscano-Anderson will join Jordan Poole, Kelly Oubre Jr., Andrew Wiggins and James Wiseman in the starting rotation against Sacramento.
