Draymond Green Suspended Indefinitely After Latest Incident by NBA


After his most recent incident, in which he hit Phoenix Suns center Jusuf Nurkić in the head, the National Basketball Association (NBA) has decided to punish Golden State Warriors star Draymond Green for an indeterminate period of time.

According to the league, the suspension “takes into account Green’s repeated history of acts that are not considered to be sportsmanlike.” The ban is Green’s sixth in his career and his second in the current season.

According to a statement released by the league, “Green’s suspension will enter into effect immediately.” Before he can return to the field, he will be needed to fulfill a number of criteria imposed by the league and the team.

Depending on the length of the suspension, Green will be penalized $154,000 each game if it is less than 20 games, and $203,000 if it is more than 20 games, as reported by ESPN.

Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN said on Thursday’s episode of “Get Up” that Green, his agent Rich Paul, and Warriors general manager Mike Dunleavy Jr. will meet later on Thursday. According to Wojnarowski, “and they are going to start the conversation with the league about what this is going to look like.”

Green stated that he did not want to punch Nurkic and apologized for the flagrant two penalty that he committed on Tuesday night during Golden State’s victory over the Boston Celtics by a score of 119-116.

“He was pulling my hip and I was swinging away to sell the call, and I made contact with him,” Green said after the game. Due to the fact that I did not intend to hit Jusuf, I would like to apologize to him.

As you are aware, I am not the type of person to apologize for things that I intended to do. I use my arms to sell phone calls. I’m not a flopper, and I don’t slip and tumble in order to sell a call.

Kevin Durant, who is currently playing for the Suns and was Green’s teammate with the Warriors when they won two NBA titles, commented on the incident by saying, “That was insane to see, glad Nurk is alright.” We have never witnessed something like that on a basketball court during an NBA game.

It has been incident after incident, and I hope that Draymond is able to get the assistance that he requires. While I was around Draymond and he was just starting out in the league, he did not behave in that manner. I am familiar with him.

It is my hope that he will receive the assistance he requires, that he will return to the court, and that he will put all of this behind him.

Green was given a five-game suspension in November from the Minnesota Timberwolves for choking Rudy Gobert, who was a member of the team.

As a result of Green’s ejection and subsequent stomping on the chest of Kings forward Domantas Sabonis, he was given a suspension for Game 3 of a playoff series that he was playing against the Sacramento Kings in April.

Green was also responsible for punching Jordan Poole, who was a teammate at the time, during practice in October 2022; however, the league did not penalize Green for that incident.

As for Green, Nurkic stated, “From my own perspective, I believe that brother is in need of assistance.”

Green gave the following response when he was asked about Nurkic’s comment: “Respect, I still know what his intentions were.” But with respect. I believe that each of us requires assistance. Respect is due to the fact that I do not believe any of us are too perfect.

It is Green’s third season with three ejections, making him the player with the most ejections in the last 25 seasons who has ever played.

Green re-signed with Golden State in June, agreeing to a contract worth $100 million over the course of four years. At the moment, he is finishing with an average of 9.7 points, 5.8 assists, and 5.5 rebounds.

According to Forbes, the Warriors have the highest team worth in the NBA, which is $7.7 billion. The Chase Center, which is located close to San Francisco Bay and costs $1.4 billion, was privately funded.
