The NBA suspended Draymond Green indefinitely after the Golden State Warriors star delivered a blow to the head of Jusuf Nurkic in a game. The suspension, which is an unusual result for a foul, takes into account Green's history of unsportsmanlike acts. Green will have to meet certain league and team conditions before he can play again. Less than a month ago, Green was ejected and suspended for five games for putting Rudy Gobert in a headlock less than two minutes into the game. Green responded by swinging his arm at Nurkic after he held the right side of Green's body in an attempt to prevent him from breaking open to receive a pass. Green made contact with the left side of the Bosnian big man's face, causing him to fall to the ground. Green left with two points, two rebound and two assists in 17 minutes after he was ejected. The four-time all-star apologized to his opponent and acknowledged that his ejection was justified.

Green said that he was swinging away to sell the call after he pulled his hip. I apologize to Jusuf because I did not intend to hit him. I wanted to sell the call, but I don't think I'm strong enough to connect with someone.

I don't know if he needs help or not. I think he tried to choke me. I hope he has a good life.

Golden State fell behind by double digits early in the fourth quarter after Green returned to the locker room. Warriors Coach Steve Kerr said that he had no comment on Green's blow because he hadn't seen a replay. He lost his cool after being suspended, and we need Draymond. Green has been disciplined by the league before, most notably for shoving Mitchell from behind during a transition play. He was suspended for Game 3 of the first-round playoff series against the Kings after he stomped on center Domantas Sabonis. The NBA noted at the time that the suspension was based in part on Green's history of unsportsmanlike acts.

Green hit James below the belt during the 2016 NBA Finals, which resulted in a one game suspension that helped swing the series in favor of the Cleveland. One week before the Warriors signed Green to a four-year, $100 million contract extension, the Wizards traded Poole.
