Green suspended for 5 games for choking opponent during NBA game

Golden State's Green (No. 23)

Draymond Green of the NBA's Golden State Warriors, who was ejected for choking an opponent during a game, was suspended for five games.

The NBA Secretariat announced on the 16th that Green would be suspended for five games and that Klay Thompson, Jayden McDaniels, and Rudy Gobert would be fined $25,000 (about 32 million won).

A fight occurred during the game between Golden State and Minnesota Timberwolves held at the Chase Center in San Francisco, California, USA on the 15th.

Early in the first quarter, an argument broke out between Golden State's Thompson and Minnesota McDaniels, and the situation escalated as other players became involved in the process.

In particular, Green attacked Gobert with a headlock and was expected to be severely punished.

Green has already been suspended for the fifth time in his career by the league office.

He was also suspended for one game once in March and April of this year, making him the third player to be suspended this year.

In the 2016 championship game, he collided with LeBron James, then of the Cleveland Cavaliers, and was suspended for one game.

This is the second time this season that he was ejected during the game, following the game against Cleveland on the 12th.

Green did not pay a fine, but missed five games and lost $769,970 in salary during that period, or 1 billion won in Korean money. 스포츠토토맨
