The league has handed down its decision on Draymond Green’s latest incident involving Jusuf Nurkić: a suspension for an indefinite period of time.

Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN was the first to break the news:

A press release from the NBA later clarified that there are certain conditions Green will have to meet before a return to play can be considered:

Wojnarowski later clarified that the league did not want to put a specific number on the suspension, but instead “allow Green to take time he might need to deal with challenges he’s facing.”

The league most certainly handed down this punishment in light of past incidents and Green’s history of unsportsmanlike and flagrant acts. This means the Warriors will once again be without their defensive engine and key passer, in a season where they are 10-13 and falling deeper toward the bottom of the Western Conference standings.
