NBA suspends Grizzlies’ Wright

Memphis, TN (Sports Network) – Memphis Grizzlies center Lorenzen Wright will
sit out the team’s regular-season opener after being handed a one-game
suspension by the NBA on Tuesday.

Wright was ejected in the first quarter of Memphis’ 97-75 preseason victory
over Milwaukee last Thursday after shoving his hand in the face of Bucks’
center Zaza Pachulia.

Wright, who averaged 9.4 points and 6.9 rebounds last season, will miss the
Grizzlies’ contest with Washington on November 3.
