Wizards' Carrick Felix and Markieff Morris have each been suspended one game without pay for leaving the bench area during an incident Friday involving Warriors forward Draymond Green and Wizards guard Bradley Beal, the National Basketball Association announced today.
The NBA has also suspended Wizards forward Markieff Morris and shooting guard Carrick Felix one game for leaving the bench area during the incident.
Green had received a technical foul earlier in the game.
With 19.5 seconds left in the second quarter, Beal held the front of Green's jersey with his left hand while grabbing Green around the jaw with his right.

Quarterback Mitchell Trubisky heaved the ball and Miller grabbed it but landed awkwardly on his left leg on the way down. Offensively, the Saints are averaging 28.5 points and 391.0 total yards (269.3 in passing and 121.7 in rushing) per game.
"A little confused. I don't know how you get fined 25 grand for being attacked".
Green was furious with the decision, as Beal had physically instigated the incident. That enraged Green, and they became entangled with arms around each other. Green got his fine because he "continued the incident by confronting Beal and failing to disengage from him", while Oubre was fined for "aggressively entering the altercation". Kerr disputed the call and argued that Green only should have been called for a delay of game after asking, "What am I supposed to do?" "It looked to me that Oubre came out there running into the crowd and caused a lot more". It seemed like those fines could've been reversed.
Wizards Coach Scott Brooks, meanwhile, said before Sunday's game that Morris will practice Tuesday back in Washington, and if everything goes well, he could be cleared to return Wednesday at Capital One Arena against the Phoenix Suns.
