Video: Hasheem Thabeet suspended one game for headbutting Greg Stiemsma

Hasheem Thabeet got into a mini-altercation with the Pelicans’ Greg Stiemsma last week during a preseason game in Tulsa.

There was no technical or flagrant foul called on the play, but Thabeet got real close to Stiemsma and apparently attempted to headbutt him.

The play didn’t feel like a very big deal at the time, but you can see Thabeet come close to making contact with his head on Stiemsma.

With Thabeet out, Steven Adams will definitely be the backup center for the season-opener at the Utah Jazz.
