In today's edition of Wizards news, Washington Wizards star Nene has been suspended one game by the NBA for his headbutt on the Chicago Bulls' Jimmy Butler during Game 3 of their Eastern Conference quarterfinal series on Friday.
So tweets out Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports:
Wiz C Nene suspended 1 game w/o pay for head-butting and grabbing Bulls Jimmy Butler around neck with hands & attempting to throw him down.

Nene has experienced a renaissance in this series, helping to key the Wizards to a 2-1 lead over the Chicago Bulls in their best-of-seven series. His presence down low will be severely missed, and could play a crucial role in Sunday's pivotal Game 4 on Sunday afternoon.
You can see video of the incident in question at this link. Suffice to say, the rest of the Washington Wizards will have to buckle down without their big man and put in a Herculean effort come Sunday.
