Darius Songaila suspended for hitting Lebron

Reserve forward Darius Songaila was suspended by the NBA today for Game 6 tonight for hitting LeBron James in the face with his hand.

Songaila participated in Washington’s shootaround at its arena Friday morning, before the league announced the suspension.

He made contact with James’ face in the first quarter of Washington’s 88-87 win over the Cavaliers on Wednesday in Game 5. That victory allowed Washington to cut Cleveland’s lead to 3-2 in the best-of-seven series.
