In a shocking announcement, the NBA has suspended Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green for five games without pay. 

The suspension comes in the aftermath of an on-court altercation where Green forcibly grabbed Minnesota Timberwolves center Rudy Gobert around the neck in what is deemed an unsportsmanlike and dangerous manner.

NBA Executive Vice President, Joe Dumars, cited Green's history of 'unsportsmanlike acts' as a significant factor in the length of the suspension.

The incident, which occurred during the Timberwolves' 104-101 victory over the Warriors on November 14 at Chase Center, saw Green assessed a Flagrant Foul 2 and subsequently ejected from the game.

In addition to Green's suspension, fines of $25,000 have been imposed on Warriors guard Klay Thompson, Timberwolves forward Jaden McDaniels, and center Rudy Gobert for their respective roles in the altercation. 

The incident unfolded when Thompson and McDaniels became entangled, leading to jersey grabbing and pulling. Gobert entered the fray by wrapping up Thompson, escalating the situation further.

Both Thompson and McDaniels received technical fouls and were ejected from the game. 
Green's suspension will commence on Thursday, November 16, as the Warriors host the Oklahoma City Thunder, leaving the team without a key player for the next five games.
