NBA Notes: Warriors, Draymond Green, Pistons, Pacers


Forward Draymond Green has been fined by the Warriors for his actions in a practice altercation with shooting guard Jordan Poole, per Kendra Andrews of ESPN.

Green will return to the Warriors on Thursday after a little time away. He reportedly was not suspended by the team, however.

“This is the biggest crisis that we’ve had since I’ve been the coach here,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said, via Andrews. “It’s really serious stuff. We’re not perfect. … But we’re going to lean on the experience that we have together and trust that this is the best decision for our team. We have a lot of work to do. All of us.”

Kerr added that Green should play in the Warriors’ preseason finale on Friday and that Green will be available for the season-opener vs. the Lakers.

  • Poole met with Green, Kerr, star guard Steph Curry and other teammates following the incident, per Andrews. “(Poole is) willing to move forward and willing to get back out on the floor with Draymond and go to work,” Kerr said, via Andrews.
  • In case you missed it, rumors have already surfaced that Green will bolt for the Lakers in free agency after the season. We have that full post right here.
