Milwaukee may have won Tuesday night's showdown with the Washington Wizards 126-113, but the Bucks may be without star Giannis Antetokounmpo for a while after being ejected for headbutting an opponent during the first half.
Antetokounmpo, who finished with 12 points and nine rebounds in just 10 minutes, got tangled up under the hoop boxing out for a rebound with the Wizards' Moe Wagner. After the play, Antetokounmpo confronted Wagner, and headbutted him in front of the Bucks' bench.
Antetokounmpo was issued a flagrant foul on the play and ejected, and will likely be suspended from future games as a result.
After the game, Antetokounmpo says he regrets the decision, but said that 'we all make mistakes.'
Brook Lopez had 24 points to lead the Bucks, who wrap up the NBA's seeding game portion of the schedule Thursday afternoon against Memphis before opening up the playoffs against the Orlando Magic in the first round next week.
