Green, 26, is coming off his best NBA season and his first All-Star appearance. He helped lead the Warriors to an NBA-record 73 regular-season wins, but his suspension in Game 5 of the NBA Finals allowed the eventual champion Cleveland Cavaliers to get back into and then win the series they trailed 3-1. Green, who averaged 14.0 points, 9.5 rebounds and 7.4 assists during the regular season, was suspended based on the cumulative number of flagrant fouls on his record during the playoffs.
