Report: Warriors' Green remains day-to-day after MRI

Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green remains day-to-day with a sprained toe after an MRI recently confirmed the injury, according a Yahoo! Sports report.

Green has missed the past five games for the Warriors, a stretch that came on the heels of the controversy surrounding an on-court argument with teammate Kevin Durant.

Green, 28, had been sidelined for a pair of games because of lingering soreness in his sprained toe and right foot. The three-time All-Star returned for a game against the Los Angeles Clippers and instead of passing to an open Durant calling for the ball under Golden State's basket in the final seconds of regulation, Green lost control of his dribble and turned it over.

After Durant complained near the Warriors' bench about not getting the ball, Green directed a tirade toward his teammate. The Warriors punished Green, suspending him for a win over Atlanta. He came back for the team's worst game of the season, a 107-86 loss against Houston, before going back on the shelf.

Green, in his seventh season with the Warriors, has seen his scoring dip to 6.9 points per game but is still averaging 7.5 rebounds, 7.2 assists and 1.8 steals.

The Warriors also are without five-time All-Star Stephen Curry, who has missed the team's past nine games because of a strained left groin muscle, but is expected to return to action at some point during the Warriors' five-game road trip that starts Thursday in Toronto.

Despite the infighting and injuries, the Warriors lead the West with a 14-7 record -- one-half game ahead of the Memphis Grizzlies, Los Angeles Clippers and Denver Nuggets.
