Kerr envisions early minutes restrictions for Draymond, Wiggins

The Warriors will have two of their biggest stars for a limited amount of time in the 2021-22 NBA season opener against the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday night.

Both Draymond Green and Andrew Wiggins will have their minutes limited, coach Steve Kerr told reporters after this morning's shootaround in LA. 

Green, who got a late start to training camp, is playing catch up and will return to playing normal minutes soon. 

"In a week or two, he'll be ready to play his full load of minutes," Kerr said. "I think he's right where he needs to be."

Wiggins, who dealt with knee soreness early on in the preseason, was revealed to be a "couple weeks away" from his optimal conditioning level. 

“He’s probably a couple weeks away from really being able to have his conditioning and rhythm where he wants it to be, and that’s fine,” Kerr said following Golden State’s final preseason game. “That’s usually the case with a lot of guys as you head into the regular season, so he’ll be fine.”
