Stephen Curry and Draymond Green are both excused from the Golden State Warriors' minicamp, according to Steve Kerr.

The Warriors' first practice took place on Wednesday.

"First of all, I want to make clear that this is a voluntary camp. And so [GM] Bob [Myers] and I have both been in touch with Steph and Draymond and we are well aware of their circumstances. And so they both have important family issues to attend to and so they have excused absences," said Kerr.

Klay Thompson and Eric Paschall are expected to join the group later this week, with Kerr adding that "Klay looks great."

Kerr described being able to practice again as a "relief" for the team. 

"For our team, it was really a relief to be out on the floor playing basketball again together. Competing, laughing, enjoying ourselves. The guys looked great. There was a lot of good energy and they had a lot of fun out there today. First time, really, that any of them have had a chance to play real basketball, other than just kind of one-on-one stuff, in a long time. So great to see them out there."
