Bucks center Joel Przybilla will miss Tuesday’s home match-up against the Indiana Pacers after hitting a referee in the leg with the ball. It happened late in the fourth quarter of Milwaukee’s 85-111 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers Saturday. Watch the incident.
According to Stu Jackson, NBA Executive Vice President of Basketball Operations, Przybilla will be suspended one game without pay for throwing the basketball and hitting a referee late in Saturday’s debacle.
Przybilla will serve his one-game suspension against a Pacers team that is loaded in the frontcourt. This means Milwaukee will be down a big as they try to move three games over .500 on the season. In their last meeting with Indiana, Przybilla played six minutes and grabbed four rebounds.
