ESPN is reporting that Washington basketball players DeJuan Blair, Nene, Daniel Orton and Xavier Silas have all been suspended one game for leaving their team's bench area in Monday's preseason game against the Chicago Bulls.
quote:

The four players left the bench during a shoving match between the Bulls' Joakim Noah and the Wizards' Paul Pierce.

Noah was fined $15,000 for starting the altercation with 8:57 remaining in the opening quarter Monday by pushing Pierce in the chest. Pierce also was fined $15,000 for poking Noah in the forehead with his index finger.
The suspensions will be served by the players during the first regular-season game which is against the Miami Heat on Oct. 29th.
