Draymond Green could face internal discipline after an altercation with Jordan Poole at Warriors practice on Wednesday.
Shams Charania and Athletic’s Anthony Slater have reported, citing sources with knowledge of the incident, that there was a ‘heated’ interaction when Green ‘forcefully hit’ Poole before the two needed to be separated quickly.
The Warriors immediately halted training after the incident and internal discipline could be imminent, according to The Athletic.
Wednesday isn’t the first time Green and Poole have been involved in an incident. In a November 10 matchup against the Minnesota Timberwolves, Green was engaged in a verbal altercation with Poole on the Warriors bench before the two eventually walked off after the game.
Shortly after news broke of Wednesday’s incident, KRON4’s Jason Dumas reported seeing Poole seemingly in good spirits while getting shot and laughing with teammates Patrick Baldwin Jr. and Lester Quinones.
It remains to be seen what internal discipline will follow, but the situation certainly looks more serious than the “squabbles” Klay Thompson described following the initial incident between Poole and Green last season.
