Joel Przybilla suspended one game for throwing ball at official

By Royce Young | NBA writer

Mouthpiece or ball, the league does not differentiate.

Bucks center Joel Przybilla has been suspended one game for throwing a ball that struck an official Saturday against the Clippers, the league announced.

After a foul call went against the Bucks late in their loss, Przybilla tossed the ball toward the official making the call near halfcourt. It never bounced and hit the ref in the back of the leg.

Przybilla will sit Milwaukee's game against the Pacers on Tuesday.
