Prepare for some news that will not likely surprise you. The NBA announced Saturday that Bucks guard Stephen Jackson has been suspended one game for verbal abuse of an official and for not leaving the court in a timely fashion during Milwaukee's Saturday night game against the Bulls.

Jackson's ejection came late in the game after he was hit with a second technical foul. Jackson will serve his suspension tonight against the Los Angeles Lakers.

Jackson did apologize on Twitter:

"To all my fans apologize for my actions. Its just somethings refs shouldnt say. Gotta keep my kool. Lesson learned."

Jackson, who was acquired from Charlotte in a deal that sent Corey Maggette to the Bobcats, is averaging 12.8 points, 3.2 assists and 3.4 rebounds a game.

awwwwww man is Bogut out again!!! When did this happen, last night???  Oh and since Bogut led Milwaukee in PPG and FG attempts per game last year I think it would be a reasonable assumption it would have an affect on the points scored by Jackson.... just sayin. Always some negative prick tryin to bash a post when they think they r smart.   Pretty simple to figure out what he was saying actually.  When Ray Allen and Rondo went down Pierce was averagin 9 shots and 11 pts per game.  Since then, he is averagin 17 shots and 26 ppg. But this could be a good chance for Jackson to break back in to the starting lineup.  He's certainly deserving as a player, just depends if the coach wants to stick to his guns and teach Jax a lesson.

What did the ref say to piss him off? He could at least share that if he is going to get suspended.

Duuuuude, what is up with this guy??  Everywhere he goes he can't just go out and play basketball!!  This goes way back to that Indiana brawl with Artest that he got involved in!!  Did okay with San Antonio but he just had to stir things up at Golden State.  And whatever, its Golden State and they havent been competitive forever, so guess demanding a trade isn't too bad.  He had some minor incidents in Charlotte but here he goes again!!!  The sad part is, he's been one of my favorite players in the NBA.  The guy has so much talent but his attitude has cost him badly.  It has cost him trades off of good teams, its cost him money and now its costing him his starting job.  He has always been a reliable scorer and he did a good job for Milwaukee right from the start!! He had a couple huge games this season and then of course the game he got T'ed up and tossed, he was awful shooting the ball!! Jackson has been average coming off the bench the last few games and now that Bogut is back, its gonna be hard for him to get the minutes or shots he's been accustomed to!  Milwaukee has had a wobbly season but they have a good team.  Brandon Jennings is really coming in to his own and has got more aggressive on offense!!! I dunno, I really thought Jackson was gonna do okay here.  Bottomline, the guy still has it in him to be a great weapon at least on offense, and hes blowing it!!!!
