Wizards forward Nene will miss Game 4 after being suspended for grabbing and head-butting Bulls guard Jimmy Butler in Game 3.

The play happened with 8:28 left in the fourth quarter as Nene tangled with Butler, then proceeded to grab him around the head/neck and pulled him into his forehead. Nene was ejected for the play. Butler received a technical.

The Bulls went on to win Game 3, with Butler hitting a critical late 3.

Without Nene, the Wizards will likely start Trevor Booker in his place.

The Wizards lead the series 2-1.
