According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the Golden State Warriors have suspended Draymond Green for Tuesday’s game. He will not be paid for missing the game against the Atlanta Hawks.

Green had an altercation with Kevin Durant following the team’s 121-116 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers on Monday night. According to multiple media reports, the Warriors confronted Green after the incident.

Green and Durant’s incident led into the locker room, according to ESPN. His teammates questioned Green’s play-making decision at the end of the game. 

While things got heated with two of the team’s core four players, nobody had to be separated. The team is reportedly taking this seriously, which led to Green’s suspension. 

This is the most intense issue with the Warriors in this era of the team, as the Oakland, California-based team has won three of the past four NBA Championships. Golden State has won back-to-back NBA Championships, including going 9-1 against the Cleveland Cavaliers in that stretch. 

Green’s teammates were frustrated with him because he did not pass the ball to Durant with a potential game-winning shot on the line. Green reportedly defended his actions instead of a KD game-winner, which caused to get worse. 

Durant was clapping his hands for the ball, as Green dribbled up the court and lost the ball. 

“Just team spirit,” Shaun Livingston said. “Team spirit. Guys wanted a different outcome than what happened. Obviously, Dray had the turnover, guys might have thought they were open or wanted the basketball, didn’t get it. Things happen like that in sports. But it was good to see some fire, some emotion.”
