Marcus Morris, Jae Crowder Fined, Elfrid Payton, Marko Guduric, Jaren Jackson Suspended 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Fri Jan 31, 2020 1:34 am

Elfrid Payton, Marko Guduric and Jaren Jackson Jr. have each been suspended one game without pay and Marcus Morris Sr. and Jae Crowder have each been fined for their roles in an on-court incident.


The incident, which began when Payton shoved Crowder to the floor, occurred with 48.1 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter of the Grizzlies’ 127-106 win over the Knicks on Jan. 29 at Madison Square Garden.


Payton, who was assessed a Flagrant Foul 2 and ejected from the game, has been suspended one game without pay for shoving Crowder to the floor while Crowder was in mid-air, for escalating the altercation, and for inappropriate post-game comments. Crowder, who was given a technical foul and ejected from the game, has been fined $25,000 for escalating the on-court altercation by, among other things, shoving Payton. Morris, who received a technical foul and was ejected from the game, has been fined $35,000 for escalating an on-court altercation by shoving Morant and for offensive and derogatory comments made to the media following the game. Guduric and Jackson have each been suspended one game without pay for leaving the bench area during an on-court altercation.


Guduric and Jackson will serve their suspensions Friday when the Grizzlies play the New Orleans Pelicans at Smoothie King Center. Payton will serve his suspension Saturday when the Knicks visit the Indiana Pacers at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

Tough break for the Grizzlies to lose Jaren Jackson Jr. for coming off the bench.

Grizz play Pelicans without Jaren in an important game for their playoff hopes......every win is key going forward.

Hopefully Jaren learns from this....and good thing it didn't happen in a playoff game (remember Amar'e Stoudemire coming off the bench after Horry clotheslined Steve Nash in Suns/Spurs series and being suspended for a game...may have cost the Suns the series).
