NEW YORK (AP) - Washington Wizards forward Nene has been suspended by the NBA for Game 4 of the team's first-round 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 the game for the incident, which occurred with 8:28 remaining in the fourth quarter of the Wizards' 100-97 loss to the Bulls on Friday night.
Nene will serve his suspension when the Wizards host Chicago in Game 4 on Sunday. The Wizards lead the series 2-1.
