The Golden State Warriors, already without an injured Stephen Curry, were further dismantled by the ejections of Draymond Green and Klay Thompson.

After just two minutes of play in their rematch with the Minnesota Timberwolves, Green and Thompson got into a nasty fight.

The first quarter ended with 10:17 remaining when Thompson and Timberwolves’ Jaden McDaniels began shoving and pulling at one another as the Warriors prepared to launch a transition attack.

As the scuffle escalated, Timberwolves center Rudy Gobert grabbed Thompson away from McDaniels.

Then, Green charged to the scene putting Gobert in a chokehold and violently dragged him away while Karl Antony-Towns and Warriors coach Steve Kerr tried to pacify the situation.

Thompson’s jersey was ripped during the altercation.

Both Thompson and McDaniel were assessed with double technical fouls while Green was hit with a Flagrant Foul-Penalty 2.

It was Green’s second ejection over the last three games.

Among the three ejected players, Green is likely to be meted with a severe penalty.

Several local and national reporters called for Green’s suspension following his ejection.

Draymond Green Slams Critics

Green slammed his critics following his ejection in the Warriors’ second straight loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers last Sunday, November 12.

“I’m in year 12 and y’all still telling me to stop being Draymond. Don’t get a tech… blah blah blah.

12 years later and y’all still trying to coach me on how to be ME? I am better at being Draymond than ANYBODY!! Imagine if I told y’all how to do your job.

You’d look at me crazy… I thought y’all should know how dumb you all look trying to tell me how to be me.

If y’all had some advice for your own lives the world would be a much better place and you would be FAR better at your JOB than your mediocre outputs.

Happy Sunday good people! Right back at it like an addict,” Green posted on his Instagram story.

He certainly doubled down on his stubbornness and crossed the line Tuesday night against the Timberwolves.

If he is suspended, it will be a big blow for the Warriors who have lost three straight entering Tuesday night’s In-Season Tournament game against the Timberwolves.

Stephen Curry’s Injury

The Warriors are already reeling from Curry’s knee injury that kept him from suiting up in their second meeting with the Timberwolves.

Curry, the Warriors’ leading scorer, is dealing with knee soreness.

The Athletic’s Shams Charania reported that “Curry is believed to have a sprain in his right knee.” He quickly added that Curry is not expected to miss much time.

But in response to Charania’s report, physical therapist Dr. Evan Jeffries—also known by his Twitter handle @GameInjuryDoc—provided an initial diagnosis based on the report.

“The MCL has the best blood supply, so if he sprains it, it’s likely to affect it, especially if he won’t be out for too long.

Healing typically takes time, depending on severity. First grade: 1-2 weeks II grade: 4-6 weeks. Jeffreys made a post on X.

The Warriors will conclude their six-game homestand on Monday against the resurgent Houston Rockets after playing back-to-back games against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Thursday and Saturday.
