Alan Anderson ejected in first quarter after scuffle with Gerald Henderson

Things got testy in Tuesday's Wizards-Blazers game, when Alan Anderson and Gerald Henderson decided to scrap after getting tangled up while fighting for position. You can watch the scuffle here, via Blazers Edge:

Both players received technicals, but only Anderson was ejected for his part in the altercation. The thing that most likely earned Anderson the ejection was this arm to the face:

Anderson arm face

Intentional or not, that's a no-no and if they want to eject someone on the principle of hitting them in the face, well there's not much you can really say, other than it's a rough blow for the Wizards. Washington came into Tuesday's game without Bradley Beal and Gary Neal, losing Anderson early in the game hurts the team's depth even more.
