The Basketball Association on Thursday suspended Maccabi Tel Aviv captain Guy Pnini from four games over Nazi remarks that he made at last week's derby. The International Basketball Association (IBA) also fined Pnini NIS 10,000. In addition, Pnini will do twenty hours of volunteer work at Yad Vashem or another Holocaust related institution.

Pnini was caught on camera calling Hapoel Tel Aviv player Jonathan Skjoldebrand a Nazi, among other profanities.

The incident was captured during a trash-talk exchange in Sunday’s derby at Nokia Arena, with Pnini also telling Skjoldebrand that he hopes he gets cancer and that his father will die.
