Markieff Morris ejected for kicking Mason Plumlee in nuts
Markieff Morris was ejected for kicking Mason Plumlee in the nuts during Wednesday’s game between the Wizards and Nuggets.
The play in question happened with two minutes left in the game. Plumlee went to defend Morris after a switch and tried knocking the ball out, which led a frustrated Morris to kick him in the nads.
