Sixers' Daniel Orton gets handed one-game suspension without pay for scrum against Portland

(Portland's Meyers Leonard and the Sixers' Daniel Orton.)

The 76ers’ Daniel Orton has been suspended one game without pay for his involvement in a scrum in Saturday’s 139-105 loss to the Portland Trail Blazers.

Orton will sit out Monday’s game at Brooklyn.

The incident occurred with 7 minutes, 19 seconds left in the fourth quarter, when the Trail Blazers’ Meyers Leonard body-slammed Orton to the ground. Orton retaliated while both were in a heap, throwing an elbow that hit Leonard in the mouth. Both received Flagrant 2 fouls and were ejected from the game.
