Jordan Bell will not play on Wednesday night in Memphis.
The Warriors announced Wednesday morning they have suspended Bell for one game for conduct detrimental to the team.
At this point, that is all we know.
In 61 appearances this season, Bell is averaging 3.0 points and 2.7 rebounds.
It sounds like Bell will be available for Friday's game at Minnesota.
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
While this isn't good news for Bell, he did dodge a bullet last week:

Without Bell in the rotation, the Warriors will be relying heavily on DeMarcus Cousins, Kevon Looney, and newly-acquired Andrew Bogut for minutes in the frontcourt. Jonas Jerebko likely will get some time at the stretch-four position as well.
