Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green and No 2 overall NBA draft pick James Wiseman are both unlikely to play in the team’s three preseason games.
Green and 19-year-old rookie Wiseman have yet to practice for the Warriors in their training camp.
The Warriors announced two of their players tested positive for coronavirus last week, and the organization never publicly stated the names of the two players, but the San Francisco Chronicle identified them as Green and Wiseman.
Head coach Steve Kerr confirmed neither player will feature on Saturday against the visiting Denver Nuggets, while they will both likely sit out following exhibition matches.

“We’ve got to be very careful and smart given the layoff that we’re all coming off of and then the short amount of time as it is for training camp,” Kerr said.
“There’s no way I’d throw either guy into an NBA game right away. They got to build into that.”
The Warriors open the season on the road against the Brooklyn Nets on December 22.
