Giannis Antetokounmpo suspended one game for headbutt


Giannis Antetokounmpo will serve a one-game suspension for headbutting Mo Wagner of the Washington Wizards in Tuesday night's Bucks win.

The suspension was reported by Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

Milwaukee has already clinched the Eastern Conference's top seed and is set to face the Orlando Magic in the first round of the NBA Playoffs, so losing Antetokounmpo for Thursday's game against the Memphis Grizzlies won't have an impact on the Bucks' playoff path.

Antetokounmpo was ejected from Tuesday's game in the first half and was assessed a flagrant foul for the incident.

Milwaukee plays Memphis Thursday afternoon to wrap up NBA seeding game play.
