Memphis Grizzlies SG Dillon Brooks will be suspended one game for his cheap shot to the midsection of Cleveland Cavaliers G Donovan Mitchell. Brooks was going to the basket and fell to the ground, rolling over and hitting Mitchell in the groin in the process. The Cavaliers guard went after Brooks and a scrum ensued before both players were tossed from Thursday’s game. Take a look at the play below:

Brooks has had a tumultuous season for the Grizzlies and he won’t be playing on Sunday vs. the Toronto Raptors. Memphis is 32-20 and in second place in the Western Conference entering play Friday. The Grizz have lost seven of the past eight games. Tyus Jones and John Konchar should see additional minutes with Brooks out on Sunday vs. the Raps.
