Draymond Green played under two minutes during Friday's semifinals win vs. Spain, finishing scoreless with zero stats to his credit.
His inactivity was even more striking since DeMarcus Cousins fouled out in the third quarter, but Coach K tightened his rotation and gave the frontcourt minutes to DeAndre Jordan (27 minutes), Carmelo Anthony (25) and Kevin Durant (30). DeMar DeRozan and Harrison Barnes both picked up DNP-CDs, and are questionable to return to the rotation for the gold-medal game on Sunday. Aug 19 - 4:28 PM

Draymond Green has reached a plea deal after facing assault charges from an incident on July 10.

Green allegedly slapped a MSU football player back on July 10 and was arrested, but this means he will avoid jail time and the charges have been reduced to a noise violation. A noise violation is a civil infraction, meaning he won't have a criminal charge on his record. Green will be suiting up for Team USA this summer and should be in the lineup vs. Argentina on Friday night.

Draymond Green stated during a recent interview that he would, "sacrifice everything for championships."

"I’d sacrifice everything for championships," said Green. "When you win, you don’t really sacrifice anything because everybody gets love when you win. That’s kind of my thing. If you’re a winner, you can’t really be denied too much of anything. I don’t mind sacrificing anything for championships, and that’s what we set out to do, win championships." Green may have to sacrifice the most out of the Dubs' quartet, as Kevin Durant will assuredly need time with the rock in his hands.

Draymond Green said he believes the legal issues stemming from Sunday's arrest will be resolved "really quickly."

"I think when things happen, I think you meet them head-on," Green said. "My legal team is handling it. It will be resolved really quickly. As a public figure, I just can't put myself in certain situations. It's something that I'll learn from and just move on." Additionally, the arresting officer confirmed that no injuries were sustained by either party during Sunday's altercation, and that the cops were not called to the scene, but were simply in the area as part of their normal patrol.

The East Lansing Police Department confirmed that Draymond Green was arrested for assault on Sunday.

According to police, the victim was a man and the incident took place in a restaurant. "It was basically an altercation between two guys," police said. "There's no injuries. He was released with a $200 bond on Sunday." The Warriors have issued a statement saying they're aware of the news, but are collecting information and withholding additional comments at this time. An arraignment has been scheduled for July 20, and if convicted, Green would face a maximum of 93 days in jail and a $500 fine.

Draymond Green will play for Team USA during the Olympics.

Several other stars have declined to play for the team including Stephen Curry, but Green doesn't want to miss out on his first chance to represent his country. For now, Green is expected to be joined by players such as Paul George, Kevin Durant, DeMarcus Cousins, Klay Thompson, Kyrie Irving and Kawhi Leonard.

Draymond Green was phenomenal during the Warriors' brutal Game 7 loss on Sunday, pouring in 32 points on 11-of-15 shooting (6-of-8 from deep) with 15 rebounds, nine assists and two steals in 47 minutes.

Green made 5-of-5 threes in the first half alone, many of which were wide open, becoming the first player to score 22+ points in the first half of a Finals Game 7 since Walt Frazier in 1970. Green's offense tonight was complemented by chaos-creating defense, a performance that cements him as one of the game's most fearsome two-way players, but it wasn't enough to carry teammates who shot a combined 21-of-68 from the field (30.9 percent). Green's suspension in Game 5 may have been a turning point in the series, but his performance on Sunday cannot be faulted.

Draymond Green scored eight points with 10 rebounds, six assists, one steal, one block and one turnover in 41 minutes against the Cavs on Thursday.

He said the Warriors would have won in Game 5 with him in the lineup, but it's almost impossible to beat the Cavs when LeBron James is rolling like he is. Green will likely start again on Sunday for Game 7.

The Cavaliers lobbied for Draymond Green to be suspended for two games, according to Zach Lowe of ESPN.

While likely a tactic to get the league to compromise on a one-game suspension, Lowe says the Cavs pushed the NBA to suspend Green for two games after a shot to LeBron James' groin in Game 4. "The Cavs wanted him suspended for two games," Lowe reported. "I can tell you that. They wanted it to be a flagrant 2 and to have him suspended for Game 5 and Game 6." The league got this one right not extending Green's ban to two games, but his absence paid off for the Cavs as they won Game 5 on the road.

Draymond Green said that he'll continue to play his game, but vowed to be more "composed" during Game 6.

Green also said that he felt like he was a bad teammate for being forced to miss Game 5, but GM Bob Myers watching the game with him in a suite at the Oakland A's stadium made him feel like being a "Warrior forever." With Andrew Bogut (knee) done for the Finals, Green is going to get all the run he can handle, and if the Dubs pull out a win in Game 6 he'll more likely be named Finals MVP.

Draymond Green was "hurting" watching the Game 5 loss on Monday, according to ESPN's Marc Spears.

He watched the game from a luxury suite at O.co Coliseum during the Oakland A's game on Monday. According to Spears, Green watched the game with the audio off because he didn't want to hear the commentary about him, and was yelling at the screen with emphasis on the defense. He has to be fired up for Game 6 in Cleveland on Thursday.

Draymond Green is expected to watch Game 5 of the NBA Finals at O.Co Coliseum, a source told ESPN's Marc J. Spears.

ESPN's Marc Stein adds, per sources, that Green would be allowed to celebrate with Golden State should the Warriors win the NBA championship on Monday. The Coliseum is connected by tunnel to Oracle Arena, so it wouldn't be difficult for Green to make the trip should his team win it all without him.
Jun 13 - 12:05 PM

Draymond Green is reportedly "pushing hard" to watch Game 5 inside Oracle Arena, despite the suspension barring him from attending.

Green and his reps are "discussing the logistics of attending with the league and players' union," though it seems unlikely that the NBA will carve out an exception for him. The Warriors and Cavs took a few shots at each other during Sunday's media availability, and Green's suspension sets the stage for an acrimonious Game 5 in Oakland. With Draymond unavailable, the Warriors could start Andre Iguodala while giving more minutes to Harrison Barnes and possibly James Michael McAdoo.
Jun 12 - 8:41 PM

Draymond Green has been assessed a Flagrant Foul 1 for his actions during Game 4 and will be suspended for Monday's Game 5 of the Finals against the Cavs.

This is obviously a tough blow for Golden State as they'll be trying to close out the series at home, and it's unclear who exactly will be stepping into the starting five in Green's place. Green only missed one game during the 2015-16 season, and Brandon Rush started that one, so he'll be an option. Festus Ezeli, Marreese Speights, Andre Iguodala and James Michael McAdoo all figure to earn some more minutes Monday night sans Green, while Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson will be running the show on offense. As a side note, LeBron James was given a technical foul for his part in the incident.

There is growing concern in the Warriors camp that Draymond Green could be suspended for Game 5 after his incident with LeBron James on Friday, according to Marc Spears of ESPN.

Uh oh. Spears says there are interviews taking place with the league. Green only needs one more flagrant foul point to get a suspension, so any flagrant ruling would cost him Game 5. The NBA should announce their ruling on Sunday. If he is suspended, Andrew Bogut will really have to step up while Festus Ezeli, James Michael McAdoo and Marreese Speights would all be in play for more minutes. Andre Iguodala would be a candidate to start, too.
