This is the third time the Golden State Warriors player has been kicked out of a game this early season. He was given a Flagrant Foul 2 and ejected from the contest. He hit Phoenix Suns center Jusuf Nurkić in the face during play in a game that took place on Dec. 12 at Footprint Center. For his action, he has been suspended “Indefinitely” by the NBA due to his “repeated history of unsportsmanlike acts.”
The suspension was announced by Joe Dumars, Executive Vice President, Head of Basketball Operations.

“Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green has been suspended indefinitely for striking Phoenix Suns center Jusuf Nurkić in the face. This outcome takes into account Green’s repeated history of unsportsmanlike acts.”
The suspension started “immediately.” The league stated that he “will be required to meet certain league and team conditions before he returns to play.”
There were no details on what that would entail, but there was also no set amount of games mentioned as well.
Green, no stranger to being assessed flagrant fouls was just suspended last month after an altercation with the Minnesota Timberwolves Rudy Gobert. After being ejected from that game on Nov. 14, the league suspended him for five games due to the actions that took place during that contest.
At that time, Dumars announced that Green had 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.”
According to ESPN, the embattled player will be meeting with Warriors general manager Mike Dunleavy Jr. and Green’s agent, Rich Paul to discuss a path of counseling for the Warriors player going forward.
