The Golden State Warriors begin a two-game road trip tonight against the Memphis Grizzlies. Unfortunately, the team will be without forward Jordan Bell, who is slated to miss the game.

Per a news release from Warriors PR on Wednesday, Bell has been suspended for tonight's game against the Grizzlies. The report stated that the one game suspension stems from "conduct detrimental to the team."

There were no further details provided outlining the exact conduct involved. He had an incident-free performance against Detroit this past week, so it would appear that it does not stem from something in the game.

Bell has seen his time on the court decline in his second year with the team. His minutes have been reduced from 14.6 per game last year to just 11.4 per game this year.

The former Oregon star was a key figure in the Ducks' 2017 NCAA Tournament run to the Final Four. He averaged 10.8 points per game and 8.8 rebounds per game as a junior, and parlayed his terrific season into an NBA career.

Bell wound up being selected 38th overall by the Chicago Bulls before being traded to the Warriors for cash.

But Bell's time in Golden State has not been completely incident-free.

He had a controversial dunk he made in a blowout win over Dallas in 2017, and was in a heated confrontation with head coach Steve Kerr earlier this season.
