Bulls F Thomas suspended; Pacers F Murphy fined
December 14th, 2007
New York, NY (Sports Network) - Chicago Bulls forward Tyrus Thomas has been suspended one game without pay and Indiana Pacers forward Troy Murphy has been fined $10,000, NBA executive vice president of basketball operations Stu Jackson announced Friday.
Thomas and Murphy were ejected from Indiana's 117-102 win over Chicago Wednesday, as a result of a brief altercation late in the second quarter. Thomas was suspended for striking Murphy in the face, while Murphy was fined for shoving Thomas in retaliation.
Thomas will serve his suspension tonight when the Bulls host the New York Knicks.
