Draymond nailing 3-pointers in workout good sign for Warriors

Draymond Green isn't at the Warriors' minicamp in San Francisco, but that doesn't mean he isn't putting in the work.

Travis Walton, one of Draymond's best friends, posted several videos on his personal Instagram account Friday showing the Warriors forward knocking down jumpers and 3-pointers.

At one point, Draymond knocks down seven straight 3-pointers.

Draymond was getting up the shots at the Samson Center, home of the Yeshiva University of Los Angeles Boys High School (YULA) team.

Draymond and Steph Curry both received excused absences from the Warriors' minicamp due to family reasons. They are the only two players not participating. Green and his fiancée Hazel Renee announced in September that they are pregnant.

The sight of Draymond looking like he's in incredible shape and knocking down jumpers has to excite Warriors fans.

After five straight NBA Finals appearances, the Warriors dealt with the loss of Kevin Durant in free agency and injuries to Curry and Klay Thompson. Draymond himself was bothered by injuries throughout the 2019-20 NBA season and played in 43 of the Warriors' 70 games. The team finished with a 15-50 record, worst in the NBA, and got the No. 2 overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft as a result.

But it looks like the long hiatus has done Draymond some good. The Warriors are out to prove next season that they can return to NBA championship contention and the video of Draymond's improved shot bode well for that goal.
