Milwaukee Bucks forward Ersan Ilyasova has been suspended for one game without pay, the NBA announced Friday. Ilyasova’s crime was stomach-punching, and throwing Sacramento Kings big man Reggie Evans to the ground. From the press release:
The incident occurred with 5:49 remaining in the fourth quarter of Milwaukee’s 116-102 loss to the Kings on Wednesday, March 5, at BMO Harris Bradley Center.
Ilyasova will serve his suspension tonight when the Bucks visit the New Orleans Pelicans at Smoothie King Center.
