The NBA reportedly announced Thursday that they will not rescind the technical foul that was called on Draymond Green — his 16th of the season — which means that Green will be suspended, without pay, for one game.
Green will serve that suspension when the Golden State Warriors play the Atlanta Hawks on Friday night at the Hawks’ State Farm Arena.
The technical foul on Green happened during the Warriors game against the Los Angeles Clippers Wednesday with just 40 seconds left in the contest, as Green threw the ball and slammed it into Russell Westbrook’s head after a score from Ivica Zubac.
Green was drafted by the Warriors in the second round of the 2012 NBA Draft, and has spent his entire career with the team.
Green is known for his versatility and tenacious defense, as well as his ability to contribute in many different areas of the game.
He is often referred to as a “do-everything” player, capable of scoring, rebounding, assisting, and defending at a high level.
Green’s breakout season came in 2014-15, when he was named to the NBA All-Defensive First Team and finished second in the NBA Defensive Player of the Year voting.
He also became a key part of the Warriors’ championship-winning team that season.
