Warriors forward Draymond Green lost his appeal to stay in the NBA. He will be forced to sit out for at least one season, but it is unclear how long he will be banned from the league for.
The nba standings are the latest results of the NBA season. The Warriors’ forward has lost their appeal with the NBA, which means that they will have to pay a fine for not making enough games this year.

Andrew Wiggins of the Golden State Warriors was given a setback this week when he received terrible news from the NBA.
Wiggins’ request for a religious exemption from viral protocol was granted by the League Office, meaning he will have to make a choice before the regular season begins on October 19, when the Dubs face LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers.
The NBA said in an official statement on Friday, September 24 that it had examined and rejected Andrew Wiggins’ request for religious exemption.
Wiggins will not be permitted to play in Warriors home games during the regular season unless he meets the requirements of the NBA’s standardized viral procedure, which may pose an issue for the Dubs in every home game this season owing to public health regulations imposed by the state of California.
Without Wiggins, the Warriors would suffer.

For the first time in more than two years, the Warriors hope to be completely healthy at some point during the 2021-2022 season, as Klay Thompson is expected to rejoin Stephen Curry and Draymond Green many weeks, if not months, after the regular season begins in mid-October.
However, the Warriors will be handicapped until then, and perhaps beyond that, without the services of Wiggins, who would normally be a starter and generated significant offensive numbers for the club last season, averaging 18.5 points per game.
Despite the offense that Wiggins can obviously provide the Warriors next season, big-time NBA experts started to suggest that the Warriors would be better off moving on from the high-paid forward in favor of someone less troublesome when word of his stance on the league’s required procedure emerged.
Stephen A. Smith, an NBA insider and daytime talkshow presenter, started the conversation on ESPN’s First Take, claiming that Wiggins’ stance on the league’s required procedure has tied Golden State’s hands. According to Smith, the issue necessitates only one definite answer.
“They need to deal Andrew Wiggins right now. Get him out of here. Smith remarked on ESPN’s famous morning sports show, “Send him somewhere else.” “This is not a difficult circumstance for me, nor is it a difficult decision.”
“Right now, Andrew Wiggins would be unable to play in 41 home games for the Golden State Warriors due to the city of San Francisco’s vaccine mandate,” Smith added. “What is he good for, what do you need him for?”
Late in the offseason, the Warriors are bringing in new talent.

While Wiggins’ future is uncertain owing to his personal medical choices, the Warriors have been working completing their roster ahead of the season.
The Dubs inked guard Avery Bradley to a contract on Friday, bolstering what is perhaps the greatest offensive backcourt in NBA history when healthy.
Bradley, 30, was selected by the Boston Celtics in 2010 and spent the first seven seasons of his now 11-year NBA career with them. He established a reputation for himself as a tough perimeter defender there.
Bradley, who measures 6-foot-3 and weighs 180 pounds, is expected to play a 3-and-D bench role for the Warriors, defending difficult backcourt matchups and reducing the toll that arduous defensive responsibilities may have on Stephen Curry’s offensive output. Bradley is also a capable 3-point shooter, with a 36.3 percent career record from outside the arc.
The golden state warriors news is a report that has been released. It states that the Warriors’ forward’s appeal with the NBA has been denied.
