Some people are crying foul at the Golden State Warriors.
Everyone was wondering what would happen to the star player and how severe the consequences for his actions would be.
In the end, Green was fined an unknown amount and will not be suspended.
In fact, he is going to join his team on Thursday, days before the new season kicks off.
Poole being “fine and willing to move forward and get back on the floor with Draymond” played a role in the decision, Kerr says.

There were more than a few fans questioning the Warriors’ decision but head coach Steve Kerr attempted to explain the situation.
He said that Poole being “fine and willing to move forward and get back on the floor with Draymond” played a major role in the decision.
At the end of the day, that explanation makes sense and it’s good that Poole has healed.
But just because Green is back doesn’t mean he will stop getting questioned by the press and fans throughout the league.
The Road Ahead For Green
Green might be back with his team and they might have a wonderful season.
They might even return to the NBA Finals yet again.
But Green may have damaged his reputation more than ever before with his latest actions.
There is a strong chance that this punch will stick with him for a long time and people will bring it up for the rest of his career.
The severity of the punch and the fact that he was slugging his own teammate makes this entire situation all the more serious for Green.
He is entering the last few years of his career in the NBA.
Will people be speaking about his punch against Poole for the remainder of his time in the league?
