Draymond Green & Jordan Poole To Face Disciplinary Action After Physical Altercation At Warriors’ Practice

There was a physical altercation at the Warriors’ practice Wednesday morning that has the team seriously considering disciplinary action toward Draymond Green, sources with knowledge of the incident told The Athletic.

When a heated interaction with guard Jordan Poole escalated, Green forcefully struck Poole and needed to be separated swiftly, sources said.

Green and Poole came chest-to-chest, with both players pushing and shoving each other prior to Green’s escalation of the physical altercation, those sources said.

The Warriors stopped practice and tried to settle nerves in the team’s locker room area, but it appears that internal discipline is imminent.

Poole and Green are known to regularly get into verbal arguments, but the team’s management and leadership believes a line was crossed.

Green, who plays primarily at the power forward position, is a four-time NBA champion, a four-time NBA All-Star, a two-time member of the All-NBA Team, a seven-time member of the All-Defensive Team and a two-time Olympic gold medalist. In 2017, he won the NBA Defensive Player of the Year Award and led the league in steals.

Nicknamed “Poole Party”, Poole spent two seasons as a two-way player of the Warriors organization before becoming an integral part of the NBA team’s rotation starting in 2021. He led the NBA in free throw percentage for the 2021–22 NBA season and went on to win an NBA championship with the Warriors the same season.
