OAKLAND, Calif. -- Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green had an MRI on his sore left knee and did not practice for the second straight day Wednesday as he continues rehabbing an injury that flared up after a scrimmage during Monday's practice.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr didn't sound too concerned about the injury, but he did note that Green will not play in Friday night's preseason game against the Sacramento Kings in Seattle.

"Draymond did not practice today and he won't play in Seattle," Kerr said after practice. "Just being careful. He still had a little inflammation this morning. The MRI was good, it was clean, so not any major long-term concern. But just trying to be smart."

Kerr admitted he wasn't sure if this injury would linger for Green, but the All-Star forward didn't seem too worried about it. Green spent time after practice speaking to visitors at the Warriors facility, and Kerr remains hopeful that Green will be able to practice again soon.

"He'll go on the trip with us," Kerr said. "We'll see if he practices [Thursday]. We're going to practice before the flight, and then no shootaround Friday, and he won't play Friday night."
