The NBA has reinstated Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green following a 12-game suspension. Green was suspended on December 13th, 2023 after striking Phoenix Suns center Jusuf Nurkic in the face. The suspension was termed “indefinite”, with Green required to undergo steps in order to be restored to the active roster.

Today, the league tweeted that Green was being reinstated, issuing the following press release:

Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green has been reinstated following his suspension for striking Phoenix Suns center Jusuf Nurkic on Dec, 12, 2023, it was announced today by Joe Dumars, Executive Vice President, Head of Basketball Operations.

During the period of his suspension, which began on Dec. 14 and resulted in him missing 12 games, Green completed steps that demonstrated his commitment to conforming his conduct to standards expected of NBA players. He has engaged in meetings with a counselor and has met jointly on multiple occasions with representatives of the NBA, the Warriors, and the National Basketball Players Association, both of which will continue throughout the season.

The Warriors play the Toronto Raptors on Sunday, the first game which Green will be eligible to play following his reinstatement.
