Draymond Green will return from his toe injury on Monday against the Wolves.

Despite missing several weeks, Green isn't giving up on the possibility of winning Defensive Player of the Year. Winning that award would make Green eligible for a supermax extension this offseason.

“I just got to come back and lock the league up,” said Green. “Which I’m more than capable of doing.”

“He’s the best defensive player in the league,” said Steve Kerr. “I think our defensive efforts have reflected that in terms of not being as efficient. Not being able to cover as much ground.”

Four seasons ago, Kawhi Leonard beat Green for the award despite playing in just 64 games.

“It’s still on my mind and I’ma get it done.”
