Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green is facing disciplinary action following a physical altercation with teammate Jordan Poole at practice on Wednesday, according to reports.

Green, 32, is entering his 11th season in the NBA and has a total of four championship rings with Golden State but the forward’s future in the Bay appears to be in jeopardy following Shams Charania of The Athletic’s recent report.

It is alleged that when a heated interaction with guard Jordan Poole escalated, Green forcefully struck Poole and needed to be separated straightaway.

The report details that both players came chest-to-chest, pushing and shoving each other before Green’s ‘escalation’ of the physical altercation.

Shortly after this story broke, NBA insider Chris Haynes reported that Green was apologetic in the aftermath of the altercation with Poole, 23, but there was a buildup stemming from teammates noticing a change in Poole’s behaviour throughout training camp.

The Milwaukee-born guard is on the verge of securing a lucrative contract extension which is thought to have played a role in the reported change in behaviour, just days after Miami Heat star Tyler Herro signed a four-year, $130 million extension to stay in south beach.

The Warriors are the Vegas favorites to win back-to-back championships in NBA betting at a price of +575, ahead of last year’s finalists Boston Celtics and 2021 champions Milwaukee Bucks.

NBA opening night is less than two weeks away and it now looks increasingly unlikely that Draymond Green will suit up in a Golden State uniform to welcome the Los Angeles Lakers to Oracle Arena.
