Golden Stаte Wаrriors ѕtar Drаymond Green to be bаnned аt leаst three weekѕ

Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green, who was indefinitely suspended by the NBA last week for striking Phoenix Suns center Jusuf Nurkic in the face, remains away from the court – and could be for weeks not months.

According to The Athletic’s Shams Charania, citing unnamed league sources, Green has started counselling and is expected to remain suspended for at least the next three weeks.

In that time the Warriors play 11 games.

On December 13, the NBA announced Green’s indefinite suspension, saying it was taking into account Green’s “repeated history of unsportsmanlike acts.”

Green struck Nurkić in the face with his right arm during the Warriors’ 119-116 loss to the Suns on December 12.

Green asserted after the game that the hit was accidental. This was the third time Green has been ejected from a game this season and his second suspension this year.

Subsequently Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr said Green’s suspension “makes sense.”

“I think the suspension makes sense,” Kerr said. “To me, this is about more than basketball. It’s about helping Draymond.

“I think it’s an opportunity for Draymond to step away and to make a change in his approach, in his life. That’s not an easy thing to do.”
