The NBA has announced a one-game suspension for both Meyers Leonard and Daniel Orton as a result of the incident.

--End of update--

Orton and Leonard were going at it during the final period of a not-so-close contest between the Philadelphia 76ers and Portland Trail Blazers on Saturday night, and that spilled over into a bit of extracurricular activity. After Leonard successfully pulled off the takedown, Orton connected on a blow to the jaw, leading to ejections for both players.
