On the flip side of that game, Draymond Green has been officially ruled out for this contest with a sore calf. Green technically has missed two games despite playing seven seconds on Sunday, which caused significant controversy for bettors. Gary Payton II and Otto Porter Jr. are questionable to play with an ankle sprain and sore shoulder respectively.

Toronto Raptors rookie Scottie Barnes and starting guard Gary Trent Jr. are questionable ahead of their matchup with the Phoenix Suns. Trent sat out their most recent game with a swollen left ankle and Barnes is dealing with a sore right knee.
