Warriors forward Draymond Green suffered a knee injury in the second quarter of Game 1 vs. the Clippers on a fast break play. Green tried to plant and it wasn't immediately apparent if he slipped or if his knee just gave out, but he came up gingerly. Later, he would go back to the locker room for treatment.

The Warriors are already without Andrew Bogut with a rib injury, and Festus Ezili isn't ready to play yet. Andre Iguodala picked up four fouls in the first half and so the Warriors are extremely short-handed.
