Wizards’ Nene suspended for 1 game
NEW YORK (AP) — Washington Wizards forward Nene has been suspended by the NBA for Game 4 of the first-round playoff series against the Chicago Bulls for head-butting and grabbing Jimmy Butler around the neck with both hands and attempting to throw him down.
Nene received two technical fouls and was ejected from Game 3 for the incident, which occurred in the fourth quarter of the Wizards’ 100-97 loss to the Bulls on Friday.
The Brazilian will miss Sunday’s game. The Wizards lead the series 2-1.
