The freshman will not be available for Saturday's game at Purdue, Michigan athletic officials announced Friday.
Novak elbowed Ohio State's P.J. Hill in the face late in the Buckeyes' 72-54 victory on Wednesday. Michigan coach John Beilein called the behavior ``unacceptable.''
Novak is averaging 6.7 points for the Wolverines (14-7, 4-5 Big Ten). Novak, of Chesterton, Ind., has started nine games.
