SAN FRANCISCO (95.7 The Game) -- The reason for Golden State Warriors forward Jordan Bell's supsension for conduct detrimental to the team has emerged, thanks to a report from Anthony Slater and Sam Amick of The Athletc.

Bell reporteldy was banned for Wednesday night's 118-103 win over the Memphis Grizzlies for fraudulently charging a purchase to the room of associate head coach Mike Brown at the club's Memphis hotel.

"Brown was alerted to the charge. He inquired about it. The staff at The Peabody hotel, where the team stayed, confirmed its purchase. So the Warriors launched a quick investigation and it became clear that Bell is the one who put it on Brown's bill. There was concern, sources say, that this wasn't the first time Bell has pulled this maneuver on some unknowing member of the organization."

Bell, who has been in and out of the rotation, is on track to rejoin the roster Friday when the Warriors visit the Minnesota Timberwolves.
