Amir Johnson Suspended 1-Game for Throwing Mouthpiece at a Referee

Surprisingly, Toronto Raptors forward Amir Johnson will only face a one-game suspension after striking referee David Jones with his mouthpiece on Monday night in Portland. Per the NBA: “Amir Johnson of the Toronto Raptors has been suspended one game without pay for throwing his mouthpiece and hitting a referee, it was announced Tuesday by Stu Jackson, NBA Executive Vice President, Basketball Operations. The incident occurred with 5:01 remaining in the third quarter of Toronto’s 92-74 loss to the Portland Trail Blazers on Monday, Dec. 10, at the Rose Garden. Johnson will serve his suspension on Wednesday, Dec. 12, when the Raptors host the Brooklyn Nets at Air Canada Centre.”
