• Heat’s Haslem and Pittman suspended ahead of Game 6

    May 24, 2012 No comments

    Miami Heat forward Udonis Haslem has been suspended by the NBA for tonight’s Game 6 of the Miami-Indiana series.

    Haslem committed a flagrant foul against Indiana’s Tyler Hansbrough during the second quarter of Game 5 on Tuesday night, shortly after Hansbrough struck Miami’s Dwyane Wade and opened a cut over his right eye.

    Haslem and Hansbrough were both assessed flagrant-1 fouls on the respective plays. If they were issued flagrant-2 fouls, they would have been ejected. Hansbrough’s foul was upgraded Wednesday to a flagrant-2, but he’s eligible to play in Game 6, while Haslem cannot.

    Also Wednesday, Miami reserve forward Dexter Pittman was suspended three games for his flagrant foul against Indiana’s Lance Stephenson late in Game 5. Pittman has played only six minutes in the playoffs.

    Tip-off for tonight’s game at Banker’s Life Fieldhouse is set for 7:00 PM.
