The Washington Wizards recently won Game 3 to finally get a game on the Boston Celtics. Unfortunately, that victory didn't come without a loss ahead of the next game. It was recently reported that the Wizards' Kelly Oubre Jr. will be suspended from playing in Game 4 on Sunday in Washington, D.C. The news arrives a few days after Oubre was involved in a shoving incident in the third game of the best-of-seven-series. Here's the latest on the Wizards player's penalty.

Oubre's ejection & suspension

On Thursday, the Wizards hosted the Celtics for Game 3 of their NBA playoff series. After losing the first two games in Boston, the Wizards had home court advantage and ultimately prevailed, 116-89.

Not even halfway through the game, tempers began to flare, leading an ejection for Kelly Oube Jr.

With about 9:12 to go in the second quarter things got heated as the Wizards' Oubre Jr. was knocked down to the court by the Celtics' Kelly Olynyk on a play to set a screen. Afterward, Olynyk is seen in a video complaining to the ref about the call on the play, but Oubre Jr. quickly jumps up to his feet and rushes over to shove Olynyk down to the floor. With a referee standing right there, Oubre Jr. also made contact with the referee who luckily stayed on his feet. From there, Oubre received a Flagrant 2 foul and sent back to the locker room for the rest of the game.

On Saturday morning, the league handed out Oubre's punishment which had been announced by the Executive Vice President of Basketball Operations Kiki Vandeweghe.

A statement from the front office indicated that Oubre was being suspended for one game without pay due to "charging and making forceful and unwarranted contact" with Olynyk.

Oubre has primarily been coming off the bench for the Wizards. In Game 3, he played just five minutes total and finished with two points.

In the first two games of the series, he gave the team 12 points in each game off the bench. Game 2 saw him also pull down seven rebounds in the team's 129-119 loss in Boston.

When asked about the suspension, Wizards head coach Scott Brooks told the media about the Wizards' "next man up" philosophy, meaning that if one player is out of action for a reason, the next available man takes over to help carry the load.

Other players that have contributed off the bench for Washington during the NBA Playoffs have included Jason Smith, Bojan Bogdanovic, and Brandon Jennings.
