The Golden State Warriors will be without Draymond Green on November 8 against the Denver Nuggets.

Green won’t play due to personal reasons. The Warriors, who are 6-2, will likely start Chris Paul, Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Andrew Wiggins and Kevon Looney versus the Nuggets, who are 7-1 on the season.

Green has appeared in six games for the Warriors this season. He’s averaging 10.3 points, 5.0 rebounds, 6.7 assists, 0.8 steals and 0.8 blocks while shooting 46.7% from the field, 42.9% from beyond the arc and 87.5% from the free-throw line.

Green signed a four-year, $100 million contract with the Warriors this past offseason. The four-time champion averaged 8.5 points, 7.2 rebounds and 6.8 assists last season in 73 games while shooting 52.7% from the floor, 30.5% from 3 and 71.3% from the free-throw line.

Green, who will make the Hall of Fame one day, told Ohm Youngmisuk of ESPN in September that he doesn’t see why the Warriors can’t win two more championships.

“I don’t like to necessarily put a number on things,” Green said. “But I don’t see why we can’t get two more championships. Why not?”

The Warriors will likely lose to the Nuggets since Green is out. Denver looks like the best team in the NBA again. Superstar center Nikola Jokic is averaging 28.4 points, 12.9 rebounds and 8.4 assists.

Green likely would have guarded Jokic. It will now be up to Looney to limit The Joker.
