Woj’s F-bomb has led to an unpaid suspension, The Post has learned.
ESPN has scrapped NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski’s trip to Orlando this week to report from the NBA bubble, according to sources, after he responded to Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) with an email that read “F–k you.”
Hawley had initiated the exchange by sending a mass letter criticizing NBA commissioner Adam Silver and the league’s relationship with China.
ESPN declined comment, though their actions will likely become obvious this week when the ultra-prominent Wojnarowski is not on the air. The end point of Wojnarowski’s suspension, if that has been defined, is not yet known.
Some NBA players and ESPN personnel have come to Wojnarowski’s defense. The Clippers’ Lou Williams tweeted “Aye #Freewoj man,” adding two crying laughing emojis. Williams’ teammate, Patrick Beverly followed the tweet with, “Till it’s backwards” and two prayer emojis.
ESPN’s Maria Taylor tweeted her support of Wojnarowski earlier, saying she would always stand with him.

Litterally NBA Player after NBA player is tweeting their support of Woj. He now probably has more players willing to be sources than he did less than a week ago.
#Freewoj is also trending as the #2 topic worldwide.
and honestly. ESPN needs WOJ more than Woj needs ESPN. he could start his only premium news site and would make more money than ESPN pays him.
