Green has been suspended without pay for Tuesday's game against the Hawks, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Green's absence from Tuesday's contest will officially be deemed a suspension after he was involved in a verbal altercation with a few teammates -- including Kevin Durant -- following Monday's loss to the Clippers. Look for Jordan Bell or Andre Iguodala to step into the lineup in place of Green, who should rejoin the starting five for Thursday's game against the Rockets.

D. Bacon - SG
Bacon is expected to see an uptick in playing time Tuesday against the Cavaliers, Spencer Davies of BBall Insiders reports.
Bacon has appeared in only six games so far this season, averaging 5.2 points across 8.5 minutes. Coach James Borrego stated that Bacon is going to get more playing time in Cleveland with Miles Bridges seeing more time at power forward.

I. Rabb - PF
Rabb has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Bucks due to an illness.
Specifics regarding the illness remain unclear, but with Rabb unavailable, look for Marc Gasol and Jaren Jackson to see the majority of frontcourt minutes Wednesday. Rabb's next chance to play will come Friday against the Kings.

O. Casspi - SF
Casspi (knee) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game in Milwaukee.
Although Casspi appears to be closing in on a return to the court, he'll be sidelined for the fifth consecutive contest with a sore right knee. He'll set his sights on returning in time for Friday's matchup with Sacramento.

Green will likely be held out of Tuesday's game against the Hawks, Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports reports.
There have been rumors regarding verbal altercations between Green and a few of his teammates within Golden State's locker room following Monday's loss, so it's unclear if this is in any way related to the decision to sit him down Tuesday. Jordan Bell figures to draw the start at power forward, and Green should return to the starting lineup for Thursday's contest in Houston.

E. Payton - PG
Payton (ankle) is questionable for Wednesday's contest against the Timberwolves, Alan Horton of the Timberwolves Radio Network reports.
Payton has been out since late October due to a sprained right ankle. He may be able to make his return Wednesday. More information on his status may arrive following morning shootaround. Payton was averaging 14.5 points, 7.0 rebounds, 7.0 assists and 1.0 steals before suffering the injury.

N. Mirotic - PF
Mirotic (ankle) is questionable for Wednesday's matchup with Minnesota, Alan Horton of the Timberwolves Radio Network reports.
Mirotic has missed two straight games due to sprained right ankle, but he's inching closer to a return. A decision on his status should be announced following Wednesday's shootaround. Wesley Johnson figures to start at forward if Mirotic is ruled out again.

D. Saric - PF
The Timberwolves are hopeful that Saric will be able to make his debut Wednesday against the Pelicans, Jace Frederick of the Pioneer Press reports.
Neither Saric nor Robert Covington were permitted to take part in Tuesday's practice, per league rules, but the expectation is the trade will officially be completed prior to Wednesday's game. Assuming that's the case, both players should be available, though it's unclear how up-to-speed they'll be on coach Tom Thibodeau's system. Saric will likely step in as the starter at power forward, though he could face some competition from veteran incumbent, Taj Gibson.
