NBA.com staff report
The Golden State Warriors won't have a home game until a week from now. By then, perhaps, coach Steve Kerr will have Draymond Green back in his lineup.
Green has not played since Nov. 15 (Nov. 16, PHL time) because of a right toe sprain. Kerr told reporters this morning that Green will not play on the team's road trip, but he is hopeful Green will return sometime next week.

The Warriors visit the Atlanta Hawks today and have road dates with the Cleveland Cavaliers on Wednesday (Thursday, PHL time) and the Milwaukee Bucks on Friday (Saturday, PHL time) before returning home to Oakland to host Minnesota (next Wednesday, PHL time). Green has missed 10 of the Warriors' last 13 games after first suffering the toe injury on Nov. 8 (Nov. 9, PHL time).
Golden State is 5-6 without Green in the lineup this season. The three-time All-Star is averaging 6.9 points, 7.5 rebounds and 7.2 assists per game while shooting 44.4 percent.
