Green got into an altercation with teammate Kevin Durant after regulation ended against the Clippers on Monday.
Durant wanted the ball to take the last shot in regulation but Green took it up the court himself and did not get a shot off.
The altercation reportedly carried over into the locker room where teammates questioned Green about turning the ball over in the waning seconds.
Green then reportedly confronted Durant about his impending free agency.
Golden State lost to Los Angeles 121-116 in overtime.
