Draymond Green was ejected for the third time this season for hitting Jusuf Nurkic in the Warriors loss to the Phoenix Suns on Tuesday.

Green received his third ejection of the season for swinging his arm and hitting the Suns center in the face with about 8:23 remaining in the Warriors’ 119-116 loss at the Footprint Center in Phoenix, AZ.

Nurkic fell to the floor and covered the left side of his face. The refs reviewed the replay and gave Green a flagrant 2 foul which triggered an automatic ejection from the game.

“What’s going on with him? I don’t know,” Nurkic told reporters in the postgame interview. “Personally, I feel like that brother needed help. I’m glad he didn’t try to choke me. At the same time, it had nothing to do with basketball. I’m just out there trying to play basketball… I hope whatever he has going on in his life gets better.”

Green was apologetic in his postgame interview, but he accused Nurkic of flopping.

“As you know, I’m not one to apologize for things I meant to do, but I do apologize to Jusuf, because I didn’t intent to hit him,” Green told reporters. “I sell calls with my arms. I don’t fall to sell a call. I’m not a flopper.”

The NBA will decide to further punish Green after his latest ejection.

Green was suspended for 5 games in November for putting Minnesota Timberwolves center Rudy Gobert in a headlock.

Green, 33, is among the league leaders in technical fouls this season. The Warriors have a 10-14 record so far.
