After recording three consecutive victories, the Golden State Warriors’ chances of extending their winning streak to four games looked bleak. In Hollywood, a rough first half turned the scoreboard ugly for Golden State against the Los Angeles Lakers.

Through two-quarters, the defending NBA champions jumped out to 73-44 advantage heading into the locker room against the Warriors. Making things worse for Steve Kerr’s rotation, Draymond Green came down with an injury.

While defending a fast break in the second quarter, Green appeared to land awkwardly on Kentavious Caldwell-Pope. On the following possession, Green moved up the court slowly. Coming out of halftime, the Warriors ruled Green out for the remainder of the game with a sprained left ankle.

Green is coming off a triple-double performance against the Charlotte Hornets, notching 11 points, 12 boards and a career-high 19 assists. Prior to his injury, the former Defensive Player of the Year recorded six points on 3-of-5 shooting from the field with two assists and a board in 13 minutes.

An update on Green’s injury will likely come following the Warriors contest against the Lakers. After their trip to Los Angeles, the Warriors and Green will have two days before traveling to the Pacific Northwest for a tilt against the Portland Trail Blazers.
