NEW YORK (AP) -Knicks forward Renaldo Balkman was suspended without pay for Wednesday night's game against the Utah Jazz for committing a flagrant foul against the Los Angeles Lakers' Sasha Vujacic.
Balkman was assessed the foul for throwing an elbow that hit Vujacic in the jaw in the second quarter of the Lakers' 120-109 win Tuesday. Besides the suspension, Balkman was assessed a flagrant foul, penalty two, NBA executive vice president Stu Jackson said in a press release Wednesday.
Vujacic, a 23-year-old guard from Slovenia, scored 12 of his 20 points in the fourth quarter to help the Lakers rally past New York and snap a season-high three-game losing streak.
Balkman, a second-year reserve, is averaging 2.9 points and 2.8 rebounds.
