Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green has been assessed a Flagrant Foul 1 upon league office review, it was announced today by Kiki VanDeWeghe, Executive Vice President, Basketball Operations.
In accordance with NBA rules, Green will serve a one-game suspension without pay for accruing his fourth Flagrant Foul point of the 2016 postseason. He will serve his suspension Monday, June 13 during Game 5 of The Finals at Oracle Arena.
James was also assessed a technical foul for the incident. Missing Green will be a huge blow for the Warriors. In the first four games of the Finals, their net rating is +13.6 points per 100 possessions when he’s on the court and -9.6 points per 100 possessions when he’s on the bench. Golden State will have their work cut out for them closing it out without him.
