Arron Afflalo Suspended 1 Game for Elbowing Gordon Hayward

Arron Afflalo was kicked out of Friday night’s game between Utah and Denver, and the NBA suspended him last night for throwing an elbow at Gordon Hayward’s mug. Per the Denver Post: “The NBA on Sunday suspended Nuggets guard Arron Afflalo one game without pay for his elbow to the head of the Jazz’s Gordon Hayward on Friday in Utah. Afflalo was ejected for the foul, saying: ‘It was a bad play on my part. I just kind of got frustrated with the game a little bit and tried to battle a few possessions here and there.'”
