Warriors’ Draymond Green suspended indefinitely by NBA for striking Suns player during game

The NBA confirmed Wednesday that Draymond Green will be suspended “indefinitely” from play. 

“This outcome takes into account Green's repeated history of unsportsmanlike acts,” NBA basketball operations executive vice president Joe Dumars stated. 

Green made the maneuver a day after hitting Phoenix Suns center Jusuf Nurkić in the face during the third quarter. 

The Warriors lost 119-116 to the Suns after Green was dismissed for his 18th flagrant two penalty. 

Nurkić was knocked down but recovered and continued playing the game. 

“He was pulling my hip and I was swinging away to sell the call,” Green told NBC Sports. I contacted him. I don't apologize for things I mean to do, but I apologize to Jusuf since I didn't mean to hurt him." 

As Kraft points out, this is the first time the team has done something like this for a player, and it has sparked a lot of reaction on social media.

Brady guided the team to six Super Bowl championships during his time in New England, so it's understandable that the team would be prepared to make an exception for the iconic quarterback.
