Magic await announcement on potential Arron Afflalo suspension

Arron Afflalo

Between yesterday's Ben Simmons-Kyle Lowry beef and the Houston Rockets' attempt to invade the Clippers' locker room, it's been a insane week in the Association...and it's only two days old.

Orlando Magic guard Arron Afflalo tried to punch Minnesota Timberwolves forward Nemanja Bjelica in the first quarter of Tuesday night's game in Orlando.

Needless to say, both Afflalo and Bjelica were ejected from the game.

Both Afflalo and Bjelica were unsurprisingly thrown out. They can expect severe discipline from the league for the fight, which will likely include suspensions.

Russian meddling in Brexit probed
The social media giant will conduct further investigations into activity around the European Union referendum following a request by MPs.

Tension between Afflalo and Bjelica began building a couple minutes before the former's wild punching attempt and the latter's subsequent headlock. He also didn't throw a punch back at any point of the altercation.

Seeing the punch, it's very surprising that Afflalo only received two games for targeting Bjelica's head like that.

"I don't want to feel like victim here". He took a swing at me. I don't know what's wrong with that guy.

The Magic ended up picking up a 108-102 victory.
