Ersan Ilyasova Suspended One Game

The NBA brought the hammer down on Ersan Ilyasova on Friday afternoon, issuing him a one-game suspension, which he will serve Friday when Milwaukee takes on New Orleans. John Henson will start at power forward in Ilyasova’s place.

The suspension stems from an altercation during Wednesday night’s game against the Kings, when Ilyasova and Sacramento’s Reggie Evans got tangled up under the basket. Ilyasova appeared to throw a punch at Evans’ midsection and proceeded to shove Evans (and his beard) to the ground. Did Evans flop? Very possibly, but we’ll let you judge for yourself. If you haven’t seen the video already, take a look:
