Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green is expected to miss Tuesday night's game against the Atlanta Hawks due to his verbal confrontation with teammate Kevin Durant. Green dribbled away the final possession of the fourth quarter without getting a shot up.
Durant was shown calling for the ball on the ensuing play, but Green seemingly ignored him, instead dribbling up the court and eventually coughing it up as time expired, despite having Andre Iguodala and Klay Thompson wide open on both sides of him.
The intensity in the locker room was heightened because the matter of Durant's impending free agency reportedly was raised.
Green rebounded the ball with about 5 seconds left and made a decision to take the ball up himself instead of passing to Kevin Durant or Klay Thompson, who wanted the ball.
