NBA D-League Suspends Four Players

Rasheed Wallace isn’t the only badboy in professional basketball. Four NBA D-League players were suspended on Friday following separate altercations in two games.

NEW YORK, Dec. 18, 2009 – The NBA Development League today issued suspensions to four players following two separate altercations during Reno’s 98-90 victory over the Bakersfield Jam in Reno on Tuesday, Dec. 15, it was announced by Chris Alpert, NBA D-League Vice President of Basketball Operations and Player Personnel.

Reno’s Cezary Trybanski received a two-game suspension, while Bakersfield’s Amara Sy and Rodney Webb were each suspended for one game. Jared Newson, who was waived by the Jam due to injury prior to the game but was seated near the bench in street clothes, received a one-game suspension.

Trybanski was suspended two games for attempting to strike Bakersfield’s Terrence Gamble and for punching Webb. Webb is being suspended for one game for striking Trybanski in the chest and for escalating the altercation between Trybanski and Gamble. Newson was suspended one game for leaving the bench area during the altercation.

Sy is being suspended for one game for striking an opposing player in the groin during a separate incident in the same game. That incident occurred with one minute left to play in the fourth quarter.

Trybanski will serve his two-game suspension beginning tonight when Reno plays the Sioux Falls Skyforce in Sioux Falls and on Dec. 21 when the team travels to play the Rio Grande Valley Vipers. Webb will serve his one-game suspension tonight when the Jam hosts the Idaho Stampede. Newson will serve his suspension when and if he is reacquired by an NBA D-League team. Sy will also serve his suspension tonight against the Stampede.
