nick-young-punchOn Wednesday night Los Angeles Lakers guard Nick Young was ejected from their game against the Phoenix Suns after pushing Alex Len and throwing a punch at Goran Dragic.

Today the NBA has announced that Young is suspended for one game without pay due to the incident.  The NBA has fined Len fined $15,000 for his flagrant foul on the play and Suns forward Marcus Morris has been fined $25,000 for escalating the altercation.

According to Sports Illustrated, Young, 28, is on the books for $1.1 million this season. A one-game suspension without pay will cost him roughly $10,000 and he will serve his suspension when the Lakers face the Celtics in Boston on Friday.

Young was also very upset following the incident citing that none of his teammates backed him up.

“What I’m mad about is it was 1-on-5, I felt like,” Young said. “If somebody [from the Lakers] would have got in the middle, everything wouldn’t have escalated that much.”
