Draymond Green Will Miss At Least 3 Weeks Of Play & Begins Suspension-Induced Counselling

The four-time NBA Champion was suspended for striking Jusuf Nurkic in the face last week.

Golden State Warriors’ formidable forward, Draymond Green, has embarked on a counseling journey, signaling his commitment to a process that mandates his absence from play for a minimum of three weeks due to an indefinite suspension.

Sources close to Green and the organization, as reported by Shams Charania of The Athletic, revealed that the four-time NBA champion is approaching the situation with understanding and readiness to fully reintegrate into the team. While respecting Green’s privacy, specifics about the counseling remain undisclosed.

This development follows an incident in the game against the Phoenix Suns on December 12, where Green, a former NBA Defensive Player of the Year, was ejected for striking forward Jusuf Nurkic in the face. Expressing remorse in a post-game press conference after the Warriors’ 119-116 loss, Green clarified, “I am not one to apologize for things I mean to do, but I do apologize to Jusuf because I didn’t intend to hit him.” He attributed the action to his style of selling calls with his arms.

Head coach Steve Kerr, demonstrating a broader perspective, emphasized that Green’s suspension transcends basketball; it’s an opportunity for personal growth and a change in approach. Kerr stated, “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.”

Joe Dumars, Executive Vice President of the NBA and Head of Basketball Operations, acknowledged that Green’s suspension stems from a “repeated history of unsportsmanlike acts.” This includes a five-game suspension in November for an altercation with Minnesota Timberwolves forward Rudy Gobert.

In the current NBA season, the 33-year-old has faced two suspensions and three ejections. The Warriors, grappling with challenges, hold a 12-14 record, securing the 11th seed in the Western Conference.
