NEW YORK (AP) -Milwaukee's Royal Ivey was suspended for three games without pay by the NBA on Wednesday for punching Chicago's Aaron Gray in the groin.
The altercation happened with 10:48 left in the second quarter of the Bucks' 151-135 loss Monday night. Ivey was barred from the Bucks' season finale against Minnesota on Wednesday and the first two regular-season games he is eligible to play next season.
Ivey was with the team at the morning shootaround. The news didn't emerge until the afternoon, and coach Larry Krystkowiak sounded surprised.
``Something took place, they reviewed the film, and made the decision at the league,'' Krystkowiak said. ``Beyond that, I haven't had a chance to talk to Ive. Just knew that he wasn't supposed to join us coming to the gym, and we're going to catch up with him on the plane on the way home.''
