An already short-handed Warriors team lost another key player Sunday as forward Draymond Green has reportedly entered the league’s health and safety protocols.

The Athletic first reported that Green entered protocols a day after scoring eight points and adding eight rebounds and 10 assists in the Warriors’ 116-107 victory over the Suns in Phoenix.

Green is the fifth Warriors’ player to be placed in protocols over the last nine days as he joins Jordan Poole, Andrew Wiggins, Damion Lee and Moses Moody. All four players were unavailable for Saturday’s Christmas Day matchup in Phoenix, but head coach Steve Kerr has not said whether any players currently in protocols could be available for the Warriors’ next game, which is scheduled for Tuesday evening at the Chase Center.

Poole was the first Warriors player to enter protocols (Dec. 17) and was followed by Wiggins (Dec. 19), Lee (Dec. 22), Moody (Dec. 24) and now Green.
