Joel Przybilla has been suspended for throwing a basketball at an official during Milwaukee's loss to the Los Angeles Clippers on Saturday

Joel Przybilla has been suspended for one game without pay for throwing a basketball at an official during the fourth quarter of Milwaukee's 111-85 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers on Saturday. The incident occurred with about a minute and a half remaining in the game. After Ryan Hollins drew a foul on Drew Gooden, Przybilla collected the ball and tossed it toward midcourt in the direction of the official communicating the foul to the scorer's table. The ball struck the official in the leg, resulting in a technical foul for Przybilla.

Here's a video of the incident:

Przybilla played just seven minutes in Saturday's game, entering after the contest had effectively been decided. On the season, Przybilla is averaging a little over 6 minutes per game and has appeared in 9 total games. Przybilla will likely serve the suspension Tuesday when the Indiana Pacers visit Milwaukee to take on the Bucks. The winner of that game will hold sole possession of second place in the Central Division behind the Chicago Bulls.
