OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) Draymond Green returned to the Golden State Warriors' starting lineup for Monday night's game against the Minnesota Timberwolves after sitting out the previous 11 with a right toe injury.

The Warriors went 6-5 without Green, but coach Steve Kerr expects his team to pick up the pace with the 2017 Defensive Player of the Year back in the lineup.

"I would think the game would get faster and we should be better defensively with Draymond out there," Kerr said. "Hopefully we can get some stops and Draymond can push the ball in transition. That's something we have done for many years, so it would be nice to see."
