Wizards' Oubre suspended for Game 4 for knocking over Olynyk

Celtics Blown Out by Wizards 116-89 in Game 3

Washington Wizards forward Kelly Oubre Jnr was suspended by the National Basketball Association on Saturday (May 6) for Sunday's crucial playoff game against Boston after throwing Celtics center Kelly Olynyk to the court.

The Vertical was first to report the suspension Saturday, two days after Oubre was ejected from Washington's Game 3 blowout victory for shoving Boston's Kelly Olynyk.

After taking a jarring hit on an illegal screen from Olynyk, Oubre charged his opponent and buried his forearm into his upper body. Oubre has averaged 6.3 points and 2.6 rebounds off the bench for Washington this postseason while making 40 percent of his 3-pointers.

Oubre was assessed a flagrant foul 2 and ejected with 9:12 remaining in the second quarter of the Wizards' Game 3 win Thursday against the Celtics at the Verizon Center.

The Wizards won the game 116-89.

Oubre said Friday that he retaliated against Olynyk because he had been "hit in the head multiple times" by the Celtics center.

Oubre will serve his suspension on Sunday, May 7 when Washington hosts Boston in Game 4 of an Eastern Conference Semifinals series. "I've confronted (Olynyk) about it". Thursday's game featured eight technical fouls and three ejections.
