The NBA suspended Nikola Jokic 1 game for leaving the bench area during an altercation between Mason Plumlee and Derrick Favors. 

Jokic will miss Friday's game against the Suns. The Nuggets were surprised by the ruling as they went through their shootaround with Jokic in the lineup.

Plumlee and Favors each received fines of $25,000 and $15,000 respectively.
