If you saw the play — or even watched the video above — you knew this was coming.

Denver’s Arron Afflalo has been suspended one game for throwing an elbow to the head of Utah’s Gordon Hayward during the third quarter of the Jazz’s win Friday night. Afflalo was ejected from that game and will sit out the Nugget’s game Sunday against Minnesota.

Afflalo is not a dirty player, I think he was trying to box out and got his elbow up, but the suspension warranted.
