FREELAND BUTTS OUT, EARNS BAN

Portland Trail Blazers and Great Britain centre Joel Freeland has landed a one-game suspension from the NBA.

The British star was punished, along with Detroit Pistons forward Shawne Williams for head-butting each other in an incident with 1:15 remaining in the fourth quarter of the Trail Blazers’ 118-99 win over the Pistons on Friday.

The penalties were announced by Rod Thorn, President, Basketball Operations.

Freeland will serve his suspension on Sunday, when the Blazers travel to Toronto to play the Raptors.
