OAKLAND, Calif. — Suspended Warriors star Draymond Green is expected to watch Game 5 of the NBA Finals on Monday night in a baseball suite next door to Oracle Arena at the Oakland Coliseum, where the Athletics are playing the Texas Rangers.

The Warriors, however, say Green’s plans had already changed several times Monday morning.

The defending champions lead LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers 3-1 and are trying to close out a second straight championship at home.

Green may enter Oracle Arena after the game to either celebrate with teammates or prepare for a trip to Ohio for Game 6. Hallways connect the side-by-side venues, allowing Green to stay close by.
