NBA Fines Draymond Green $25,000 For ‘Directing Profane Language Toward a Game Official’

Following Draymond Green’s ejection from the Warriors’ 110-108 loss to the Spurs, the NBA decided to fine Green for $25k for “directing profane language toward a game official.”

To date, the NBA has been stringent about enforcing its policies about player-referee interactions. When Green was ejected twice in the third quarter at just a moment’s notice, he violated those policies.

Green has averaged 7.6 points, 7.5 rebounds, 7.1 assists, and 1.1 blocks per game for a Warriors (47-25) team that is third in the West behind the Phoenix Suns (58-14) and Memphis Grizzlies (49-23) with 10 games remaining in the regular season for the Dubs. The Warriors will be without Stephen Curry for all of those games as he recovers from a sprained foot he suffered last week.
