Warriors forward Draymond Green was assessed a flagrant foul 1 and suspended for Monday’s Game 5 of the NBA Finals for a shot to LeBron James’ groin in Game 4.
This isn’t the first time Green has had issues with delivering a shot to an opponent’s groin. In Game 3 of the Western Conference finals, Green, while trying to sell a foul, kicked Oklahoma City Thunder big man Steven Adams in the groin. Green was given a flagrant foul 1 and fined $25,000. That flagrant foul 1 gave him three flagrant foul points in the postseason. Another flagrant foul would trigger an automatic one-game suspension. That came in Game 4 of the Finals.
Never miss a local story.
