NEW YORK (AP) - The Denver Nuggets' Nene has been suspended two
games without pay by the NBA after head-butting an opposing player
and making contact with an official.

NBA executive vice president of operations Stu Jackson announced
the discipline on Monday.

Nene was ejected with 7:25 left in the fourth quarter of Denver's 118-115 loss to the Phoenix Suns on Monday night, after head-butting the Suns' Louis Amundson. After the ejection, Nene made contact with a game official, Jackson said.

Nene, who is averaging 14.6 points and 7.8 rebounds, will begin serving his suspension Wednesday night against New Orleans. He
would be eligible to return March 28 against Golden State.
