Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green has been suspended one game without pay for receiving his 16th technical foul of the 2022-23 season, it was announced today by NBA executive vice president and head of basketball operations Joe Dumars.
Under NBA rules, a player or coach is automatically suspended without pay for one game once he receives his 16th technical foul during a regular season.
For every two additional technical fouls he receives during that regular season, the player or coach will be automatically suspended without pay for an additional game.
Green received his most recent technical foul with 40 seconds remaining in the second quarter of the Warriors’ 134-126 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers on March 16 at Crypto.com Arena. After the Clippers' scored, Green gathered the ball and seemed to toss it in the direction of Clippers forward Paul George.
