The Brooklyn Nets security official who intervened during a scuffle between Kevin Durant and Bucks forward P.J. Tucker in Game 3 won't be permitted to work any of the series' remaining games in Milwaukee, a league spokesperson told ESPN's Tim Bontemps.

He also won't be assigned to court duties for any games in Brooklyn.

As Tucker and Durant went face to face during a third-quarter altercation on Thursday, a security guard rushed onto the court before emphatically shoving Tucker away, angering the Bucks forward.

That staff member was later reported to be Durant's personal bodyguard, and he's also on the team's payroll, according to The Athletic's Joe Vardon.

The Bucks will host the Nets again for Game 4 of their Eastern Conference semifinal on Sunday before the series returns to Brooklyn for Game 5. If necessary, Games 6 will take place in Milwaukee, with Game 7 following in Brooklyn.
