Dropping the findings on the recent incident involving Draymond Green of the Golden State Warriors, the NBA handed a five-game suspension without pay to the experienced forward on Wednesday.

Green, 33, will forfeit 769,970 dollars due to the sanction, apart from sitting out the next five games of the 2023-24 NBA Regular Season. Warriors teammate Klay Thompson, Minnesota Timberwolves French center Rudy Gobert, and Jaden McDaniels were issued fines.

Per the press release:Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green has been suspended five games without pay for escalating an on-court altercation and forcibly grabbing Minnesota Timberwolves center Rudy Gobert around the neck in an unsportsmanlike and dangerous manner, it was announced today by Joe Dumars, NBA Executive Vice President, Head of Basketball Operations. The length of the suspension is based in part on Green’s history of unsportsmanlike acts.

In addition, Warriors guard Klay Thompson Timberwolves forward Jaden McDaniels and center Rudy Gobert have each been fined $25,000 for their roles in the incident, which started when Thompson and McDaniels became entangled and were grabbing and pulling at one another’s jerseys, and continued when Gobert entered the situation and wrapped up Thompson.

Thompson and McDaniels were each assessed a technical foul and ejected, while Green was assessed a Flagrant Foul 2 and ejected.

The incident occurred with 10:17 remaining in the first quarter of the Timberwolves’ 104-101 win over the Warriors on Nov. 14 in Chase Center.

Green will begin serving his five-game suspension on Thursday, November 16 when the Warriors host the Oklahoma City Thunder.”

Stephen Curry is out as well

Meanwhile, the Warriors updated the status of Stephen Curry. The 35-year-old point guard is set to miss more games with a sore right knee.

Per the press release: “Stephen Curry, who did not play in last night’s game against the Timberwolves due to a sore right knee, underwent an MRI yesterday afternoon to determine the extent of the injury.

The MRI did not reveal any structural damage. Stephen will not play in Thursday’s game against the Thunder and will be re-evaluated at some point later this week.”
