Draymond Green Suspension Timeline

To get a complete picture of why Green likely  gets ejected from games as often as he does, we need to go back to when he was a kid growing up in Saginaw, Michigan.

Before attending Michigan State University, Green tried to model his game around four-time Defensive Player of the Year Ben Wallace of the Detroit Pistons. In 2016, Green penned a letter to Wallace regarding how instrumental he was in inspiring his basketball career1.

Wallace didn’t have a reputation for being a particularly dirty player, but he was one of the instigators of the “Malice at the Palace” brawl. This brings us to Draymond Green’s suspension history and the key events that have marred his career in the NBA.

Green has been suspended six times in his career:

  • Game 5 of the 2016 NBA Finals (LeBron James low-blow)
  • 2018-19 regular season (Kevin Durant altercation)
  • 2022-23 regular season (16th technical foul)
  • 2022-23 First Round of the NBA Playoffs (Domantas Sabonis stomp)
  • 2023-24 regular season (Rudy Gobert headlock)
  • 2023-24 regular season (Punches Jusuf Nurkic)

In addition to the five suspensions, Green has received 18 ejections and 20 disqualifications in regular-season games since entering the NBA in 2012. That includes a whopping 141 technical fouls throughout his career2.

Aside from his most recent trouble, the most memorable suspension of Green’s career has to be his first in 2016. Green and LeBron James had a physical altercation and got tangled up in the 2016 NBA Finals. The sequence ended with Green delivering a below-the-belt blow to James.

Despite not being suspended for punching Jordan Poole in practice (Green was fined by the Warriors), let’s not forget about that one, either. In any event, check out Draymond Green’s most recent suspensions, including the latest incident that resulted in an indefinite suspension.

Draymond Green Sabonis Stomp (2022-23)

Green has a long list of players that he is not friends with in the NBA. In the 2023-23 NBA Playoffs, Green didn’t waste any time finding a new enemy. On April 18, 2023, in Game 2 of the First Round, Green and Sacramento Kings’ power forward Domantas Sabonis were involved in a scuffle.

Following a missed jumper from Malik Monk with the Kings up 91-87 in the fourth quarter, Green and Sabonis were tied up in a fight for the rebound. With Sabonis flat on his back and his arm around Green’s leg, the 6-foot-6, 2016-17 NBA Defensive Player of the Year took offense.

Rather than step away and head back down the floor, Green stomped on Sabonis’ chest with his right leg. Green didn’t stop there, either. He used Sabonis as a springboard with all of his weight to propel himself into the air. As a result, Sabonis was left writhing in pain on the floor.

Green avoided a lengthy punishment, but received a one-game suspension from the NBA. The Warriors won Game 3 and ultimately beat the Kings in seven games.

Draymond Green Chokehold (2023-24)

Last month, Green received the sixth suspension of his NBA career. This was yet another Draymond Green suspension that could have been avoided if he simply backed off and defused the situation without applying a chokehold to Rudy Gobert.

On November 15, 2023, Green was suspended for five games after choking the Timberwolves’ center. There were multiple players involved in the scuffle, with Klay Thompson and Jaden McDaniels also playing a role.

The fight began due to Thompson grabbing and pulling McDaniels by his jersey, which prompted Gobert to come and break up the altercation. However, Green couldn’t help himself and put a chokehold on Gobert before he could do anything.

Green didn’t immediately let go of the headlock. He pulled Gobert across the floor away from the melee, only to start another skirmish. It didn’t take long for the NBA to levy a five-game suspension to Green.

Draymond Green Nurkic Punch (2023-24)

The five-game suspension apparently didn’t resonate with Green, because he was at it again just weeks later. In a December 12, 2023 matchup against the Phoenix Suns, Green laid Nurkic out with a punch to the face.

The latest incident occurred at 8:23 of the third quarter. With the Warriors looking to inbound the ball, Nurkic was playing tight defense on Green. Rather than fight for position, Green spun around and clocked Nurkic in the face with his hand.

He received an obvious flagrant foul and was ejected from the game after the officials reviewed the play. The NBA went down harder on Green this time with an indefinite suspension. Having served roughly a one-month suspension, Green is set to make his return to the floor.

Was that punishment enough to deter Green from acting out against opponents, or even teammates, over the next three months?

Will Draymond Green Get Ejected or Suspended Again?

Along with our daily NBA betting picks, we are checking out the best Draymond Green prop odds for his reinstatement this week. According to the odds, at -140, another Draymond Green ejection is expected in the 2023-24 regular season.

Does that bet present any value? Considering what we discussed, most bettors are going to side with another ejection. Green hasn’t done anything to prove that he can be trusted by anyone.

However, for the “No” to hit, we just need him to go three months on his best behavior. This isn’t a full season bet or include the postseason.

Another thing to consider is a possible injury. If Green suffers an injury, then he can’t be on the floor to get ejected from the game or suspended. That is something to keep in mind when betting on the Draymond Green ejection prop bet at BetOnline.

The indefinite suspension that he received had to be a wake-up call for Green, kind of. At least for the near future, Green will likely avoid any confrontations. The Warriors need him on the floor, and we’re confident that he doesn’t run into any issues for three months.

We don’t have any confidence in Green avoiding multiple ejections next year, though. He’ll likely revert to his old ways after the sting of lost wages from the Nurkic suspension abates.

At +110, there is an opportunity to back Green staying out of trouble with officials for the rest of the season. While his history says otherwise, he should stay the course and behave after being suspended for a month.

Our NBA AI picks engine does not have a formula for computing whether Green will be suspended again in 2023-24. In our opinion, however, he smartens up in the short term and isn’t ejected.
