Draymond Green welcomes baby boy

Warriors Media Day
Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green (23) talks with the media as the World Champion Golden State Warriors hold media day at the Warriors practice facility in Oakland, Calif., on Monday, September 28, 2015.

Draymond Green missed Thursday night’s 117-101 Warriors win against the Brooklyn Nets after the birth of his first child.

Draymond Green Jr. was born at 3:55 a.m. and elder Green flew back to the Bay Area to be with him and mother Jelissa Hardy.

This is the first child for the longtime couple, while Hardy has a daughter from a previous relationship, and all four were pictured together in a series of pictures Green has posted at the hospital.

Green’s status for the rest of the road trip — which includes a Christmas Day game against the defending champion Cleveland Cavaliers — is up in the air and unknown at this time.

While the Warriors are without him they will start Kevon Looney at power forward in Green’s place. Looney had 4 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists Thursday against Brooklyn.
