SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Golden State guard Baron Davis was cleared to play in Game 5 of the Western Conference semifinals on Tuesday despite his flagrant foul on Utah's Derek Fisher in Game 4.

The play from late in Utah's 115-101 victory on Sunday happened away from the ball and was not seen by officials. On Tuesday the NBA reviewed it and gave Davis a flagrant foul, but did not suspend him.

"It was a relief, but I didn't think I was going to get suspended anyway. I didn't feel that I should have been suspended," Davis said.

With 1:37 left in the game and the Jazz on their way to taking a 3-1 series lead, Davis and Fisher were running up the court when Davis stopped and Fisher didn't. Fisher ran into Davis' elbow and immediately dropped to the floor holding his head.

There was no foul called on the play. The league looked at the replay and gave Davis a Type II flagrant foul, which would have meant an automatic ejection had it been called during the game.

"I think it's fair," Davis said. "I didn't intend to hurt nobody out there, especially a good friend in Derek Fisher."

Davis apologized to Fisher, who was well enough to finish the game.

Fisher said any discipline was up to the league, not him.

"I think the game is played at too intense of a level and too emotional of a level to be able to after a game go back and judge what a guy's intention was," Fisher said.
