Draymond Green to be suspended following altercation with Jusuf Nurkic, per report.

Report: The Coach Suspension following 2 Other Players….

Green will be suspended for the second time this season
It appears as though the NBA will need to discipline Draymond Green for the second time this season. The Golden State Warriors forward was ejected from a game against the Phoenix Suns on Tuesday for striking Jusuf Nurkic in the head. His suspension is pending, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Green, a repeat offender who’s been ejected three times this season, was last put on the shelf for five games after putting Minnesota Timberwolves center Rudy Gobert in a choke hold during a first-quarter skirmish. Green’s next suspension could very well be longer than that, as his last two incidents were roughly a month apart.

The Warriors are struggling to stay competitive this season and rank 11th in the Western Conference with a 10-13 record. Missing Green’s defense and playmaking could hurt them significantly and they’ve been less successful when he isn’t available so far this season.
