NBA Player Suspended for Last Night’s Actions
Joe Dumars, the Executive Vice President and Head of Basketball Operations for the Boston Celtics, made the decision today that Grant Williams, a forward for the Celtics, is being suspended for one game without pay for recklessly making contact with a game official. He also had some choice words for the ref as well.
The incident, which occurred with 8 minutes and 58 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter of Boston’s loss to the Chicago Bulls by a score of 120-102 on October 24 at United Center, resulted in Williams receiving a technical foul and being ejected from the game.
Williams will serve the serve his one game suspension during the Celtics’ home game against the Cleveland Cavaliers this Friday.
