In what has already been a trying season for the Toronto Raptors, one of its players was ejected from the game tonight and now is most likely facing a suspension.
Forward Amir Johnson was ejected from the Raptors game against the Portland Trailblazers after he refused to give the ball to referee David Jones. As his Raptor teammates were trying to hold him back, Johnson took out his mouthpiece and threw it right at Jones, where it hit him right in the back.
Johnson is most likely looking at a lengthy suspension and the hapless Raptors could really use his services right about now. Johnson, a key member of the Raptor bench, is averaging 7.3 points and 5.4 rebounds this season.
Portland won the game, 92-74, to drop the Raptors to 4-18 and 1-14 on the road.
