Ersan Ilyasova suspended 1 game for punching Reggie Evans

Nelson Chenault-USA TODAY Sports

The Bucks will be without Ilyasova after the league suspended him for throwing a punch at Reggie Evans.

Milwaukee Bucks forward Ersan Ilyasova has been suspended one game without pay for punching Reggie Evans in the stomach during the Bucks' loss to the Sacramento Kings on Wednesday, the league officially announced. The play occurred during the fourth quarter as the two players were positioning themselves for a rebound. Here's a GIF of the incident:

Ilyasaova will not be available when the Bucks visit the New Orleans Pelicans on Friday. The team has not announced Ilyasova's replacement, though second-year big man John Henson will likely slide into the starting lineup.

Milwaukee currently has the worst record in the NBA, going just 12-48 through the season. Ilyasova is having a down season following up a career-best 2012-13 campaign. He's shooting 31 percent from beyond the arc after back-to-back seasons of making at least 44 percent of his three-point attempts. His scoring average has dropped to 10.9 points per game, and he's averaging his lowest rebounding total since his rookie season.
