 DALLAS (AP) -Jason Kidd won't be suspended for his flagrant foul on New Orleans' Jannero Pargo, meaning the Mavericks will have their starting point guard Tuesday night when they try to avoid elimination Tuesday night in Game 5.
Kidd's takedown of Pargo drew an automatic ejection. The NBA reviewed the play Monday and determined further punishment wasn't necessary, league spokesman Tim Frank said.
The play came with 7:16 left in the Hornets' 97-84 victory Sunday. Dallas trails 3-1 in the first-round series.
Pargo said after the game he was surprised Kidd was ejected. Kidd said he was ``just trying to stop him from getting an easy layup.''
