NEW YORK -- Milwaukee Bucks center Joel Przybilla has been suspended one game without pay for throwing a basketball that hit a referee during a game against the Los Angeles Clippers.

Stu Jackson, the NBA's executive vice president for basketball operations, announced the suspension Sunday.

The incident occurred with 1:36 remaining in the fourth quarter of Milwaukee's 111-85 loss to the Clippers on Saturday night.

The 7-foot-1 center will serve his suspension Tuesday when the Bucks host the Indiana Pacers.
