Washington Wizards forward-center Nene was suspended one game without pay by the NBA for head-butting and grabbing guard-forward Jimmy Butler of the Chicago Bulls around the neck with both hands and attempting to throw him down.

The incident, in which Nene received two technical fouls and was ejected from the game, occurred with 8:28 left in the fourth quarter of Friday's playoff game, won by the Bulls.

Nene will serve his suspension Sunday when Washington hosts Chicago for Game 4. The Wizards lead the series 2-1.
