Facundo Campazzo suspended for Nuggets-Warriors Sport 1, Wayne Ellington fined for Twitter possibility
Lakers guard Wayne Ellington performed keyboard warrior. Nuggets guard Facundo Campazzo can’t play against the Warriors.
That’s the fallout from Campazzo pushing down Ellington from behind in the Los Angeles-Denver usual-season finale.
After the game, Ellington tweeted:
Denver Nuggets guard Facundo Campazzo has been suspended one sport without pay for forcefully shoving Los Angeles Lakers guard Wayne Ellington to the ground from behind, and Ellington has been fined $20,000 for escalating the incident with a threatening touch upon social media postgame, it was as soon as launched at the present time by Byron Spruell, President, League Operations.
The incident, for which Campazzo was as soon as assessed a Flagrant Substandard 2 and ejected, took place with 7: 24 final in the 2nd quarter of the Nuggets’ 146-141 past usual time loss to the Lakers on April 10
Campazzo will assist his suspension Saturday when the Nuggets face the Golden Yelp Warriors … in Sport One of their first round sequence in the 2022 NBA Playoffs.
Campazzo seemed unlikely to crack Denver’s postseason rotation, anyway. The Nuggets will depend on Monte Morris, Will Barton, Austin Rivers and most definitely Bones Hyland and Bryn Forbes at guard.
But Denver loses the solution to flip to Campazzo for a spark. He can swing momentum along with his energy and feistiness (which, sprint, assuredly involves dirty plays).
