Cleveland Cavaliers rookie Kevin Porter Jr. has been suspended by the NBA for making contact with a referee during the team’s loss to the Dallas Mavericks on Sunday.

Porter, 19, is averaging 5.3 points and 2.3 rebounds per game this season.

The Milwaukee Bucks took Porter with the 30th overall pick of the 2019 NBA Draft. After a draft-day trade with the Detroit Pistons, the Cavaliers received Porter in exchange for cash considerations and draft picks.

The rookie will miss the Cavs’ contest against the Boston Celtics on Tuesday.
