Andrew Bogut, Mo Williams suspended by NBA after scuffle

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

The two players have been suspended after their involvement in a scuffle between the Portland Trail Blazers and Golden State Warriors on Saturday.

The NBA suspended Warriors center Andrew Bogut and Trail Blazers guard Mo Williams on Monday after their involvement in a scuffle on Saturday between their two teams, according to USA Today's Sam Amick. The league has also fined Golden State's Draymond Green and Portland's Wes Matthews and LaMarcus Aldridge.

Williams will miss a home game on Monday against the New York Knicks. Bogut will be suspended for a Tuesday matchup against the New Orleans Pelicans. Aldridge will be fined $45,000 while Matthews and Green will pony up $20,000, according to Alex Kennedy of HoopsWorld.

The scuffle began when Bogut became upset with Portland's Joel Freeland, who was jostling for position on a rebound. After shoves were exchanged, Williams, Matthews and Aldridge came to their teammate's defense. Williams shoved Bogut and in between both teams trying to sort things out, which warranted a swing by Bogut.

Williams also was pushed out of the commotion and toward the Golden State bench, where he exchanged words with the injured Jermaine O'Neal.

Officials initially ejected Williams and Green, and dolled out technicals to Matthews, Bogut, Aldridge and Warriors forward David Lee. Matthews left the game because his part in the exchange earned him a second technical foul of the game. Portland went on to win the game 113-101 behind Aldridge's 30 points and 21 rebounds.
