The NBA has announced that they have suspended Washington Wizards forward Kelly Oubre Jr. for Game 4 of their series with the Boston Celtics. Oubre Jr. was ejected from Game 3, as well.
He charged at and also pushed Celtics forward Kelly Olynyk after a screen in Game 3. Oubre Jr. took offense to several moving screens that “he felt crossed line,” according to The Vertical’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
The Wizards will be without a complete bench for the second straight game. Also, when Oubre Jr. shoved Olynyk, he also made contact with a referee.
Despite being ejected, the Wizards won Game 3 and trail the Celtics 2-1. Washington will have an opportunity to even the series on Sunday at the Verizon Center.
Oubre Jr. played 54 minutes in the first two games of the series. The Wizards are already planning to give Bojan Bogdanović additional playing time.
They are also expected to keep Bradley Beal on the floor more, according to SB Nation.
