NBA - US Sports: Warriors confirm Green return

Golden State Warriors have confirmed Draymond Green will return after a lengthy absence on Monday night when Washington Wizards visit the Chase Center.

The Dubs are 10/11 to win with a -12.5 handicap in the Point Spread and Washington (+12.5) can be backed at 10/11.

Green has missed the last 29 games with a back injury and his last appearance was a seven-second cameo in January to mark the occasion when Klay Thompson made his return from nearly two years on the sidelines.

Warriors emerging from slump

The Dubs have hit some form after a rough patch and have won their last three games.

And Green's return comes as a welcome boost to the team as they prepare for the play-offs, with Golden State sitting in third spot in the Western Conference with a 46-22 overall record with just 14 regular season games remaining.

Hawks need to see off Trail Blazers

There are eight other NBA games on Monday including a key clash between the Hawks and Portland Trail Blazers in Atlanta.

The Blazers sit in 11th spot in the West, but they are just one game behind New Orleans Pelicans immediately above them in the final play-in place.

The Hawks reached the Eastern Conference finals last season but looked in danger of missing out on the postseason altogether earlier this term.

Atlanta have won their last two games and each of their last five at home and now sit in ninth spot in the East with a three-and-a-half game lead over Washington in 11th.

Los Angeles Lakers still have plenty of work to do if they are to secure a play-in place in the West and they face a tough game against a Toronto Raptors outfit who are pushing for a top six finish in the East.

Meanwhile, defending champions Milwaukee Bucks are also in action as they face a tough trip to Utah Jazz.
