Kerr a ‘little confused’ by Draymond’s 25k fine

OAKLAND — In the wake of Draymond Green drawing a $25,000 fine for his involvement in Friday night’s tussle with Bradley Beal of the Washington Wizards, Warriors head coach Steve Kerr is puzzled by the numbers.

“I’m a little confused,” Kerr admitted before Sunday’s game against the Pistons. “I’m not sure how you get fined 25 grand for being attacked.”

“So, I don’t know. It seemed like maybe, maybe there’s some prior reputation involved.”

Bell out again

For the second time in as many games, rookie Jordan Bell is inactive for Sunday’s meeting with the Pistons.

Kevon Looney and Omri Casspi, two potential options both starred against the Wizards. Kerr said JaVale McGee will be needed against Andre Drummond. Thus, another night in a suit for Bell.

“Right now it’s tricky to try to locate the guy we should make inactive,” Kerr said.
