An algebraic tail in the Green-Kubo integral for the solid-fluid friction coefficient hampers its use in the determination of the slip length. A simple theory for discrete nonlocal hydrodynamics near parallel solid walls with extended friction forces is given. We explain the origin of the algebraic tail and give a solution of the plateau problem in the Green-Kubo expressions. We derive the slip boundary condition with a microscopic expression for the slip length and the hydrodynamic wall position, and assess it through simulations of an unsteady plug flow.
