Warriors' Green facing lawsuit for alleged assault

Golden State Warriors All-Star forward Draymond Green faces a lawsuit that alleges "assault, battery and related claims based on his alleged acts of violence against a young man and woman." 

The plan to file a lawsuit was made public in a press release on Monday from Lisa Bloom, a lawyer representing the plaintiffs. She also claims Green made "misleading statements" about the suit. She said she would be filing the lawsuit Tuesday. 

The lawyer did not indicate when the incident occurred or whether anyone was arrested. 

Bloom said the accusers are demanding "accountability and an apology from Mr. Green, who has often been called a bully both on and off the basketball court." 

She added that the unnamed man and woman would speak for the first time about the lawsuit at noon Eastern time on Tuesday. 

In 2016, Green was charged with misdemeanor assault after an altercation in an East Lansing, Mich. bar that involved a former Michigan State football player. That case was later settled.
