Draymond Green became a father early this morning, when his girlfriend Jelissa Hardy gave birth to a son, Draymond Jamal Green.

Green announced the birth of his son with a post to Instagram this afternoon.

Green traveled back to the Bay Area for the birth of Draymond Jr., and will miss tonight's Warriors game in Brooklyn against the Nets.

Considering the opponent, that shouldn't be a huge deal for the team, although they do ramp things up over the next few games. Golden State travels to Detroit tomorrow to play Green's home state Pistons, and have a highly-publicized NBA Finals rematch in Cleveland against the Cavaliers on Christmas Day. We'll see if Green returns in time for those games, although we doubt he misses a chance for a rematch with LeBron James and company.
