Citing court documents, the Mercury News' David DeBolt reported Tuesday that legal representatives for former Michigan State football player Jermaine Edmondson "want to question Johnson about a tweet he posted following the incident outside a Michigan restaurant."

Talked with my friend Draymond Green and he was very apologetic to the Warriors organization, fans and everyone involved.2016-7-12 19:45:46
Green, who was initially charged with misdemeanor assault and battery, later reached a plea deal and paid a $560 noise violation to avoid jail time.
Edmondson and his girlfriend, Bianca Williams, are now suing Green for assault, battery and infliction of emotional distress, per DeBolt.
Johnson is expected to provide a deposition Oct. 4 at the Lakers' practice facility.
