ORLANDO’S JASON WILLIAMS SUSPENDED
NEW YORK, October 29, 2010 – Jason Williams of the Orlando Magic has been suspended without pay for one game for making contact with a game official following his ejection, it was announced today by Stu Jackson, NBA Executive Vice President, Basketball Operations.
The incident occurred with 58 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter of the Magic’s 112-83 victory over the Washington Wizards at Amway Center on Thursday, Oct. 28. Williams will serve his suspension tonight when the Magic face the Miami Heat at American Airlines Arena.And here's the video of the incident courtesy of NBARauf on YouTube. Williams received back-to-back technical fouls during the final minute of Orlando's blowout win for arguing a player control foul. Williams then lightly brushed one of the officials before being escorted off the court by teammate Marcin Gortat. The NBA, of course, has implemented stricter technical foul guidelines this year. The Artist Formerly Known As White Chocolate goes down as the regular season's first high-profile victim of the new rules. The Magic will make due with starting point guard Jameer Nelson and backup point guard Chris Duhon in Williams's absence.
