Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo has been handed a one-game suspension for headbutting Washington Wizards center Moe Wagner during a game on Tuesday.
Reigning MVP Antetokounmpo was ejected in the second quarter of the Bucks' 126-113 win over the Wizards after he knocked his head into Wagner's temple. Neither player was injured.
The incident occurred as a visibly frustrated Antetokounmpo approached Wagner near the Milwaukee hoop, moments after he was called for a charging foul.
