So far, the only team successful in beating the Golden State Warriors has been the Memphis Grizzlies. That too, they have to drag them to overtime to seal the deal. Since then, the Warriors have been undefeated in the past six games. And if there is any other organization that has a good chance of putting an end to that, it’s the Chicago Bulls.

With a team good enough to finish off their winning streak, the Warriors will need all hands on deck. Unfortunately, that might not be possible as an injury update on Damion Lee and Draymond Green has been announced before this matchup.

Is Draymond Green just resting? Or should Warriors fans be worried?

If injuries become the reason for the Golden State Warriors’ downward spiral, it would break fans’ hearts. Another one of their stars has been listed probable for the game against the Chicago Bulls. While playing against the Minnesota Timberwolves last, Draymond Green had to leave midway through the third quarter because of a thigh contusion.

Some had reason to believe that he even injured his knee. However, Steve Kerr cleared that up and calmed everyone down. So far, it looks like the big man is only missing this game to rest, as a precautionary action. Along with him, Damion Lee is also ruled as probable.

The Warriors have been dominating on both ends of the floor so far. Even without Klay Thompson, they have managed to keep their record 10-1, the best in the league. As long as that doesn’t get affected too much, Green missing one game won’t be such a big deal. And let’s not forget, they do have Stephen Curry and Jordan Poole to hold the fort.

The Chicago Bulls have had an unexpectedly impressive season. They have an 8-3 record, having just defeated the Dallas Mavericks by a 117-107 score. Lonzo Ball and Zach LaVine have been spectacular on the offensive end.

But the difference-maker has been Alex Caruso. He has been a big boost from them off the bench, taking a lot of the load of the stars to play with lesser pressure. He is that player who could pose trouble for the Warriors. With Draymond Green out, will it affect the result of the game for the Dubs? Or will they assert dominance even without him?
