The NBA has given Draymond Green, a forward with the Golden State Warriors, his reinstatement.
Draymond Green, a forward for the Golden State Warriors, was released from his indefinite suspension on Saturday, according to an announcement made by the National Basketball Association (NBA). Within the announcement that they made, the league included the following:
Today, Joe Dumars, Executive Vice President and Head of Basketball Operations, made the announcement that Draymond Green, a forward for the Golden State Warriors, had been reinstated after being suspended for striking Jusuf Nurkic, a center for the Phoenix Suns, on December 12, 2023.
The steps that Green took during his suspension, which began on December 14 and resulted in him missing 12 games, proved his commitment to conforming his behavior to the standards that are required of NBA players. Green’s suspension began on December 14. In addition to holding meetings with a counselor, he has also held talks with representatives of the National Basketball Players Association, the National Basketball Association, and the National Basketball Association on many occasions. Both of these meetings will continue throughout the season.
Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN stated that it is anticipated that Green would require a period of ramping up, which is anticipated to take approximately one week. The return of Green to the lineup of Golden State Warriors will occur after this ramp-up is finished. After serving his punishment, Green is anticipated to return to the Warriors on Sunday. This will be the first time that he has been with the club since his suspension.
It does not appear that Green did anything to violate the terms of his suspension, and it would be interesting to learn the reasoning behind this decision. Green was allowed to practice with the team during his suspension.
