Golden State Warriors power forward Draymond Green looks to be in some trouble just a few weeks prior to participating in the Olympic Games.

According to Brendan Quinn of, Green was arrested on Sunday in East Lansing, where he attended Michigan State. While details are still unknown at this time, we do know he was arrested for assault.

“The police department is not confirming any arrest with that name,” said Lt. Scott Wrigglesworth, the East Lansing police department Public Information Officer. “What I can confirm is that we did arrest a current NBA basketball player this weekend and he was arrested for assault. That's all we're confirming right now.”

Green has yet to comment on the incident.

Of course, before knowing any specifics, Twitter immediately reacted to the news claiming Draymond kicked someone in the nuts.

This could impact Draymond’s chances of playing in Rio. He has 10 days to be arraigned in East Lansing. The games start on August 5.

If this incident really is serious and Green has to go to jail, the Warriors might only win 65 games next season.


Evan Sernoffsky of the San Francisco Chronicle reports that Draymond "slapped a taunting fan," but nobody was hurt.
