Warriors’ Jordan Bell Suspended For Reported Hotel Room Charges

Posted March 31, 2019

As the story states, the items or amount charged was not known, but social media let their imagination wander following the news.

The Athletic first reported that Bell's purchase sparked a team investigation when Brown first realised he'd been thrown under the bus.

Golden State Warriors forward Jordan Bell was reportedly suspended for one game on Wednesday over a hotel charge he made to an assistant coach's room. What isn't, though, is who got unknowingly charged for it: assistant coach Mike Brown.

Bell, 24, served his suspension Wednesday night as the Warriors defeated the Grizzlies, 118-103. While the rooms themselves are paid for by the team, anything else purchased at the hotel is not. There was concern, sources say, that this wasn't the first time Bell has pulled this manoeuver on some unknowing member of the organisation. The 2017 second-round pick had a tiff with coach Steve Kerr during a timeout earlier in the season before Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant apparently talked him down.

"The release was self explanatory", Kerr said.

Bell, 24, was supposed to take the court with his reigning National Basketball Association championship Warriors in a Wednesday game against the Grizzlies at the FedExForum arena in Memphis, Tennessee, but the forward was yanked from the lineup before tipoff. Why? In 11.4 minutes per game this season, he's averaged 3.0 points, 2.7 rebounds, 1 assists, and 0.7 blocks per game.
