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.

  1. Oh so that’s what happened. Couldn’t see toss that well during game. Can understand the frustration, but now he’s not an option against Pacers.

    Going to need all the help we can get to take game.

  2. They didn’t show Pryz’s reaction. Did he look surprised or was there maybe some chatter we couldn’t hear and he kind of earned that?

  3. He tossed the ball softly to a ref after a foul committed by another player but he did it as the ref turned to face the scorer’s table and it hit him in the leg. Pryz didn’t appear angry or say anything, but he also didn’t look apologetic… idk if it warranted a suspension though, probably had more to do with his reputation than anything.
