The ejection stemmed from an altercation that broke out in the first two minutes of the game on Tuesday. Golden State's Klay Thompson and Minnesota's Jaden McDaniels were pulling and shoving each other in transition before Timberwolves center Rudy Gobert joined in to pull back Thompson.
The move against Green's teammate seemingly prompted him to put Gobert in a headlock and drag him across the court. Thompson, McDaniels, and Green were all ejected from the game.
Following their ejections, the Timberwolves defeated the Warriors 104-101 to move 2-0 in the in-season tournament.
