Blazers’ Meyers Leonard, Sixers’ Daniel Orton each suspended one game for altercation

Dec 15, 2013, 4:36 PM EST

Portland’s Meyers Leonard and Philadelphia’s Daniel Orton were each suspended one game without pay on Sunday for their roles in the altercation that took place between the two players on Saturday, the league announced.

Leonard body-slammed Orton to the floor (that’s the term used in the official release, so it must be true), and then Orton responded with an elbow to Leonard’s face.

The Blazers will be without Leonard in Detroit Sunday when they face the Pistons, and the Sixers will be without Orton when the team heads to Brooklyn on Monday to face the Nets.

    That was funny at the end. It looked like Orton was asking if he gets two free throws after his ejection.
