Miami Heat center Dewayne Dedmon has been suspended for one game following his ejection from Tuesday night's win against the Oklahoma City Thunder.

The incident occurred during a heated discussion with the Heat's coaching staff in the second quarter. Dedmon, frustrated, threw a hand-held massage gun onto the court, causing play to be stopped.

It is unclear what the argument with the coaching staff was about, but Dedmon had made a halfhearted swipe at the ball on the play prior to the timeout.

Head coach Erik Spoelstra stated that while the incident was unfortunate, it was unacceptable.

Dedmon has had a frustrating season, averaging the lowest minutes of his career and not starting a single game.

With the Heat sitting outside of the top-six in the Eastern Conference, it is likely that they will explore moving Dedmon, as his contract for the 2023-24 season is non-guaranteed and younger players have passed him up.
