ASK THE TRADER 🤔

December 14, 2023

The NBA dropped the hammer by suspending Warriors star Draymond Green indefinitely after he struck Suns center Jusuf Nurkic in the face on Tuesday night. He’s already been ejected ❌ three times this campaign, which is tied for his most in any season.

But how much is Draymond still worth to the spread and other game odds? We called on trader Wyatt Satre to help explain.

ASK THE TRADER: Draymond’s suspension won’t have much of an impact on odds for Warriors games. Maybe he’s worth half a point to the spread and a point on the total. His defensive impact isn’t anywhere near where it used to be, as he’s outside the top 25 in defensive rating. Opposing big men have feasted on the Warriors’ interior throughout the season already, but Draymond’s absence could still move those props by 1-2 points and a couple rebounds.
