Draymond Green faces suspension just right after picking out up 16th technical foul


Mar 17, 2023

Draymond Green had been toeing the line with referees for extra than a month, but on Wednesday, he crossed the line and now he will have to commit the value tag.

Just just prior to halftime of the Warriors’ game against the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday at Crypto.com Arena, Green was assessed his 16th technical foul of the season, which will warrant a a single-game suspension barring the NBA rescinding the penalty, which seems unlikely, supplied the nature of the infraction.

As Clippers center Ivica Zubac banked a shot in, Russell Westbrook appeared to shove Green in the back. The Warriors’ forward responded by throwing the ball at Westbrook. The refs straight away blew the whistle and handed Green a technical foul.

If the NBA does not rescind the technical foul, Green will be forced to sit out the Warriors’ game against the Atlanta Hawks at State Farm Arena on Friday evening.

Green’s 15th technical foul came on Feb. 13 against the Washington Wizards, and he had avoided No. 16 till Wednesday evening.

Ironically, on the extremely subsequent sequence, Green was on the receiving finish of unnecessary make make contact with with when Marcus Morris Sr. flung him to the court. The Clippers forward was assessed a flagrant two foul and ejected from the game.

As for Green, now that he has 16 technical fouls this season, he will get a additional a single-game suspension for just about just about every two techs he picks up this season.

The Warriors want to win just about just about every game achievable the rest of the way, so losing Green for even a single game can do genuinely really serious harm to their NBA playoff seeding.
