Heat forward James Johnson will miss Wednesday's game at the Pacers.

Miami Heat forward James Johnson and Toronto Raptors forward Serge Ibaka have each been suspended for their role in an on-court skirmish, the league announced Wednesday.

Ibaka and Johnson threw punches at each other following a foul on Johnson and immediate shove by Ibaka.

The incident occurred with 7:50 remaining in the third quarter of the Heat’s 90-89 victory and can be viewed below.

Johnson will serve his suspension Wednesday when the Heat play at the Indiana Pacers. Ibaka will serve his suspension for Raptors’ game vs. the Cleveland Cavaliers on Thursday.

Per the league:

“The NBA also fined the Raptors’ DeMar DeRozan $25,000 and the Heat’s Goran Dragic $10,000 for a separate altercation at the end of the game, during which DeRozan attempted to forcefully shove Dragic with an open hand.”
