Miami Heat forward James Johnson and Toronto Raptors forward Serge Ibaka have each been suspended one game without pay for throwing punches at one another, it was announced by Kiki VanDeWeghe, Executive Vice President, Basketball Operations.
The incident occurred with 7:50 remaining in the third quarter of the Heat’s 90-89 victory over the Raptors on Jan. 9 at Air Canada Centre.
Johnson will serve his suspension tonight when the Heat faces the Indiana Pacers at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. Ibaka will serve his suspension on Jan. 11, when the Raptors host the Cleveland Cavaliers at Air Canada Centre.

The NBA also fined the Raptors’ DeMar DeRozan $25,000 and the Heat’s Goran Dragic $10,000 for a separate altercation at the end of the game, during which DeRozan attempted to forcefully shove Dragic with an open hand.
