On Wednesday afternoon, the Warriors announced that Jordan Bell was suspended for one game because of conduct detrimental to the team.
On Wednesday night -- hours after Golden State's win in Memphis -- we found out some specifics regarding Bell's conduct.
Anthony Slater and Sam Amick of The Athletic have the details:
At some point on Tuesday night, Jordan Bell made a purchase at the Warriors' team hotel. The exact item or items and amount of the bill is unclear. What isn't, though, is who got unknowingly charged for it: assistant coach Mike Brown. That, league sources say, was the reason for his team-issued one-game suspension.
Brown was alerted to the charge. He inquired about it. The staff at The Peabody hotel, where the team stayed, confirmed its purchase. So the Warriors launched a quick investigation and it became clear that Bell is the one who put it on Brown's bill. There was concern, sources say, that this wasn't the first time Bell has pulled this maneuver on some unknowing member of the organization.
The one-game suspension will cost Jordan Bell $9,505. The Warriors will not receive a tax credit because the fine was team issued. Bell is a restricted free agent this summer.— Bobby Marks (@BobbyMarks42) March 27, 2019
He is expected to be available when the Warriors play in Minnesota on Friday night.
During his pregame media availability on Wednesday evening in Memphis, Steve Kerr declined to shed any light on the specifics behind Bell's suspension.
