*Milwaukee Bucks head coach Jason Kidd will miss Friday’s game against the Orlando Magic because he’s been suspended.

Kidd has been benched for one game without pay for aggressively pursuing and confronting a game official, slapping the ball out of his hands, and not leaving the court in a timely manner upon his ejection, it was announced today by Kiki VanDeWeghe, Executive Vice President, Basketball Operations.

The incident, for which Kidd was assessed a technical foul and ejected, occurred with 1:49 remaining in the fourth quarter of Milwaukee’s 129-118 loss to the Sacramento Kings on Wednesday, Nov. 25 at BMO Harris Bradley Center.

Watch below:

Assistant Joe Prunty will likely run the team in Kidd’s absence.
