Green received a flagrant 2 foul for striking Nurkic and was ejected for the third time this season.

The discipline come just about one month after Green's last suspension, which was for five games after for putting Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert in a chokehold.

The league has made it clear that Green's history as a repeat offender continues to play a major role in the severity of the punishments it hands to Green.
