Arron Afflalo got into it with Timberwolves big man Nemanja Bjelica on Tuesday night. Things got chippy between Bjelica and the Orlando Magic’s veteran forward, and once Afflalo got fed up with how things were going between the two, he threw a massive right hook. This led to him getting put into a headlock.

Both Afflalo and Bjelica were tossed from the game, which Orlando ended up winning. In the aftermath, Bjelica claimed that he was trying to deescalate the situation by grabbing Afflalo, and the NBA edited footage of the altercation out of its League Pass archives for both teams.

After a few days of mulling things over, the league has decided on a punishment. According to Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports, Afflalo will be suspended for two games due to haymaker.
