The Golden State Warriors are expected to speak with forward Draymond Green regarding a video posted to his Snapchat story taken from inside a car moving as fast as 118 mph.  

The Snapchat, which has since been deleted, was captured by TMZ and posted Wednesday: 

"We are aware of the video and will discuss it with Draymond after tonight's game," the Warriors said in a statement Wednesday night, according to the Bay Area News Group's Diamond Leung. "We hold all of our players and staff members to a high standard that sends a positive message and example to our fans and the community in general. We look forward to having a conversation with Draymond and getting additional information."

Following the Warriors' 114-98 win over the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday night, Green told reporters "the video was 'poor judgment,'" according to Leung. However, it's yet to be confirmed if Green was a driver or passenger.  

Outside of reigning MVP Stephen Curry, Green has arguably been the Warriors' best player this season.

Not only is Green capable of guarding all five positions because of his size (6'7"), toughness and athleticism, but he's also on track to become the first player since Grant Hill in 1996-97 to average at least 10 points, nine rebounds and seven assists over the course of a single season, per Basketball-Reference.com

The only other players to meet those statistical benchmarks in NBA history are Oscar Robertson, Larry Bird, Wilt Chamberlain, John Havlicek, Magic Johnson and Fat Lever.
