Warriors' JaMychal Green fined for 'profane' words to referee 9:54 PM ET Kendra AndrewsESPN Golden State Warriors forward JaMychal Green has been fined $20,000 for "directing profane and derogatory language" toward an official, the NBA announced Thursday night. The incident occurred at the end of the Warriors' 130-119 loss to the Phoenix Suns on Wednesday night. Editor's Picks Warriors, lacking 'grit,' waste Curry's 50-point gem 15h Kendra Andrews Green has been in and out of the Warriors' rotation since coming to Golden State at the start of the season. After not playing in three consecutive games, Warriors coach Steve Kerr said he'd insert Green back into the rotation, playing him at more of a center position rather than as a forward. The thought was that this would help continue to unlock guard Jordan Poole in the second unit. Against the Suns, Green finished with two points and two rebounds in 17 minutes.
