Following his technical foul for throwing the ball at Russell Westbrook's head during a game against the LA Clippers, Draymond Green will be suspended for the Golden State Warriors' next game.

This was Green's 16th technical foul of the regular season, making him the second player in the NBA to be suspended for one game due to reaching this threshold.

The first was Memphis Grizzlies' Dillon Brooks. The Warriors are currently on a five-game road trip and will face the Atlanta Hawks on Friday with Green sitting out.

Unfortunately, Green's absence comes at an inconvenient time for the team as they are already dealing with the fallout of Andre Iguodala's fractured wrist and the unavailability of two-way player Anthony Lamb.

Although Lamb is expected to eventually fill the Warriors' final roster spot, there is no timeline for this development.

Additionally, Andrew Wiggins is still out indefinitely due to personal reasons, and Gary Payton II is not expected to return until April.

With a record of 36-33, the Warriors are currently tied with the LA Clippers in the standings and are ranked fifth in the Western Conference.

The head-to-head matchups between the two teams could be a deciding factor if they finish the season with the same record.

Jonathan Kuminga is expected to start in place of Green against the Hawks on Friday.
