Steph Curry sustained a sprained MCL on Sunday in the Warriors' Game 4 win in Houston.
After the results of Curry's MRI on Monday, the Warriors announced he would be re-evaluated in two weeks.
The injury does not appear to be season-ending.
"It's definitely a relief, but it's not something that you can plan on," Draymond Green told reporters on Tuesday. "At the end of the day, it's a sprain, and you just never know how he's gonna react to that. Some people can come out here and play today on a sprain. Some people can't play for weeks."
Warriors general manager Bob Myers told reporters the two-week timeline is an "educated guess." It's possible Curry returns earlier, but there's a chance he misses more than two weeks.
The Warriors are not the same team without their superstar point guard, but Draymond still likes Golden State's chances.
"We're still very confident," Draymond said. "If I sat here and told you our confidence level is the same without Steph -- it's a lie. But I think our confidence with Steph is through the roof (laughing), it's beyond high. Without Steph, it's still at the roof.
"We're not losing much confidence. We still believe in ourselves, we still think it's very possible for us to make a run and hold it down 'till he gets back."
Why is Draymond confident the Warriors can go deep into the postseason without Curry?
"I think this year we've gotten better playing without Steph," he answered. "We figured it out. I think a part of that is just knowing the offense better. We know he's out, everybody gotta be moving, everybody gotta be cutting, you gotta get those easier baskets."
If the Warriors get past the Rockets, they will face the winner of the Clippers-Blazers series in the Western Conference Semifinals.
Portland and Los Angeles are tied at two games apiece, with Game 5 Wednesday night at Staples Center.
A potential Game 7 between the Clippers and Blazers would be on Sunday in LA, which means if Golden State advances past Houston, the Warriors would open their next series on Tuesday at Oracle Arena.
But the primary focus right now is closing out the Rockets.
"This is a team that you don't want to give confidence to," he explained. "The first half of that game (Game 4), they came out confident off that Game 3 win. And they are tough to handle when they're that confident.
"So, it's a team that you gotta come out and try to punch them in the mouth right away. If you do, you have a much better chance of beating them then if you let them get rolling and you gotta try to stop them then.
"So it's very important to come out and win this Game 5."
