Philadelphia 76ers first round draft pick Jahlil Okafor has certainly had a string of bad luck the last week or so. Last week, a video surfaced of him getting into a fight with a fan following a loss in Boston and then a video of another fight surfaced earlier this week.
After reports of Okafor being given a full-time bodyguard surfaced, it looks like the 76ers are not taking any chances with him. According to NBA.com’s John Schuhmann, the team has suspended Okafor for two games.
The team plays against the New York Knicks tonight and then Saturday, December 5 against the Denver Nuggets. This announcement comes just a day after the 76ers broke their record-long losing streak by beating the Los Angeles Lakers.
17.2 points and 8.1 rebounds per game this season.
