EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) A judge has agreed to move a hearing for Golden State Warriors star Draymond Green in his misdemeanor assault and battery case before he leaves next month for the Olympics.

The Lansing State Journal reports that a pre-trial conference originally set for Aug. 4 will be held next Thursday. The former Michigan State basketball player is accused of striking former Spartans football player Jermaine Edmondson in the jaw during a weekend confrontation near the East Lansing campus.

Green's attorney says it would be difficult for his client to communicate while he's out of the country.

Green was arrested and taken to the East Lansing jail where he had a blood-alcohol level of 0.10, police said. According to a police report, Green said ''he was sorry'' and sought ''to make things right.''

How will Green's arrest impact Team USA?

Michigan State says Edmondson has received his release to transfer.
