According to an NBA press release, Sweeden’s first NBA player, Jonas Jerebko, has been suspended for fighting during his first preseason game against Miami. The Pistons rookie and Jamaal Magloire — who also will miss the season opener — were ejected after throwing punches in the 4th quarter on Monday. Jerebko and Magloire will serve their suspensions commencing with the first game of the regular season in which they are eligible and physically able to play.
In related news, Detroit’s first rounder, Austin Daye, was ejected last night with less than a minute to play for getting tangled up with Carlos Delfino. Detroit players go hard, but someone might remind the rookies that it’s still only preseason.
