Nene Suspended One Game For Head-Butting Jimmy Butler

Wizards big man Nene has been suspended for Game 4 against the Bulls after this altercation with Jimmy Butler. Early in the fourth quarter of the Bulls win over Washington, Nene head-butted Butler, then grabbed him around the head and neck, and the two had to be pulled apart by referees and teammates. Nene was ejected and Butler assessed a technical foul. He later hit a key three-pointer with 24 seconds left.
