OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Draymond Green has no structural damage in his injured left knee but is still doubtful to play in the Golden State Warriors’ next game.

The Warriors released the results of the MRI on Thursday (Friday, PHL time) and said Green traveled with the team for its current three-game road trip. Golden State plays Friday night (Saturday, PHL time) at New Orleans.

Green got hurt in the closing seconds of the third quarter of Tuesday’s (Wednesday, PHL time) season-opening 122-121 home loss to Houston when he drove left to the basket, took an off-balanced shot and landed awkwardly. He came up hobbling and grabbing at his knee.

Golden State missed his presence down the stretch and Green finished just shy of a triple-double with nine points, 13 assists and 11 rebounds.
