"NBA suspends Washington Wizard forward Nene"

See also

It is official that Washington Wizard, Nene Hilario has been suspended for game four against the Chicago Bulls. Nene received two technical fouls in game three of the 2014 playoffs for head butting and grabbing Chicago Bull Jimmy Butler around the neck with both hands which ultimately brought players and the referees to intercede the confrontation.

Although Butler received a technical foul, he handled himself well in not countering with his own aggressive grabbing of Nene. Butler was praised by his coach in not retaliating.

Nene is suspended without pay. The news was announced today by Rod Thorn, President of Basketball Operations.
