Bob Myers offered up a fountain of information in his call to “The Greg Papa Show” with Bonta Hill on Wednesday afternoon.

The Warriors president of basketball operations/GM began with an update on Draymond Green, sidelined with  a toe injury.

“It will be at some point next week — I think in the homestand,” Myers said.

The Warrior are back at Oracle on Monday Dec. 10, tipping off against the Timberwolves.

Myers was less decisive when asked about DeMarcus Cousins, on the path back from a torn Achilles. The exec hedged when asked if was confident that Cousins would return by the end of the month, estimating that the center is currently 75/80/85 percent right now.

“I don’t know,” Myers said. “I really don’t. It depends on what he does over the next (25 days)...”

“But he’s doing well. I don’t really want to put a timeline on it in a good or bad way.”

He also had jokes about Dray and Cousins scrimmaging together in preparation for their respective returns:

“I imagine it was colorful — let’s just put it that way…”

“Nobody got hurt and I don’t think anybody’s feelings got hurt. So, I think they’re okay.”

With Green and Cousins mending and Damian Jones headed for surgery, Myers is open to adding a big man to the roster.

“If it makes sense yeah,” Myers said. “Why not?”

Myers also disclosed the latest (non) update on the Patrick McCaw situation:

“There’s no animosity in any direction…”

“I don’t have any update one way or the other. It’s in the same place as it was before.”
