Green kicked Thunder's center Steven Adams in the groin area in the first half of Sunday night's Game 3 blowout loss in Oklahoma City.


The Dubs All-Star says the kick was accidental.

The NBA had the option of deciding to suspend Green for Game 4 and/or fine him.

The NBA released a press release saying Green's flagrant foul on Adams has been upgraded to a Flagrant Foul 2, and that he has been fined $25,000. "After a thorough investigation that included a review of all available video angles and interviews with the players involved and the officials working the game, we have determined that Green's foul was unnecessary and excessive and warranted the upgrade and fine," Basketball Operations Executive Vice President Kiki VanDeWeghe announced.

The Thunder crushed the Warriors 133-105, taking a 2-1 series lead in Game 3.
