Draymond Green says 'tell (Michigan) to come at me' in game Sunday

If there was any doubt that Michigan State’s Draymond Green was going to play this weekend against Michigan, well, doubt no more.

Green, who suffered a knee injury last Tuesday against Illinois, sounds like he is good to go.

“I’m fine, I don’t have to convince anyone of anything,” Green said Friday. “This is Michigan State and we’re built on toughness.”

The Spartans (17-5, 6-3 Big Ten) battle Michigan (17-6, 7-3)on Sunday at home. Tipoff is at 1 p.m. and the game will be broadcast on CBS.

At first, Green’s injury seemed to be quite bad, but the X-ray came back negative and it was just something that was going to be sore for a while.

“It’s just one of those things that you gotta work your way back into everything and that’s what I’m doing,” Green said.

And if anyone thought he would sit against Michigan — his final regular-season game against Michigan — think again.

“I’ll sit out next game, but I won’t sit out this game,” Green said.

Oh, and this was his message to the Wolverines: “Tell them to go at me. We’ll see if I can move on Sunday.”
