Will the NBA suspend Draymond Green for hard foul on Patty Mills? What to know Warriors star’s suspension history

Months after serving an indefinite suspension for a flagrant foul, Warriors forward Draymond Green has again made headlines with his physicality.

Early in the first quarter of Golden State’s road win over Miami on Monday, Green attempted to navigate a screen set by Heat guard Patty Mills. Green got too physical with his screen navigation as he was whistled for a foul for wrapping his left arm around Mills’ neck, sending Miami’s guard to the ground. 

After the play was reviewed, Green’s foul was deemed a common foul, but due to the nature of the contact — and his history — there has been a discussion of whether Green’s foul will result in a suspension.

Here is what we know about Green’s status and availability moving forward.

Will Draymond Green be suspended for foul on Patty Mills?

There has been no indication that the NBA will review Green’s foul on Mills. The league reserves the right to review the foul and can upgrade it to a Flagrant Penalty 1 or 2, which would retroactively result in punishment for Green.

Here is a look at Green’s foul on Mills:

Green was last suspended in mid-December after committing a flagrant foul on Suns center Jusuf Nurkic. 

The NBA handed Green an indefinite suspension on Dec. 13, citing a “history of unsportsmanlike acts” while outlining parameters for his reinstatement. Green’s suspension lasted 12 games, and he missed an additional four games as he ramped up his conditioning to return to competition.

Green’s latest incident comes as the Warriors are in a battle for the final spot in the West’s Play-In Tournament with just 11 games remaining in the regular season.
