 ATLANTA (AP) -Atlanta Hawks starting point guard Anthony Johnson was suspended for Monday's game against Portland without pay for committing a flagrant foul against Toronto's Jose Calderon.
Johnson was assessed the flagrant foul and ejected for hitting Calderon's head with his forearm in the second quarter of the Raptors' 89-78 win Friday. Besides the suspension, Johnson was assessed a flagrant foul, penalty two, NBA executive vice president Stu Jackson said in a press release Sunday.
Calderon clutched the back of his head after taking the hit but remained in the game and made both technical free throws.
It was the first meeting between the teams since Hawks rookie Al Horford knocked Toronto guard T.J. Ford to the ground Dec. 11 in Atlanta. Ford was taken to an Atlanta hospital with a stinger.
Johnson, 33, is averaging 6.3 points and 4.9 assists.
The suspension leaves rookie Acie Law and Tyronn Lue to share time at point guard against Portland. The two have combined for eight starts this season.
