Pistons guard Bynum suspended for punch
(Reuters) - The Detroit Pistons will be without Will Bynum for their game on Monday against the playoff-bound Atlanta Hawks after the guard was suspended for one game for punching a rival player on Saturday.
Bynum was punished by the National Basketball Association for striking Tyler Hansbrough of the Indiana Pacers in the stomach as he struggled to get around a pick set by Hansbrough during Detroit's 90-72 loss to the Pacers.
Six-year NBA veteran Bynum is averaging 9.4 points and 3.8 assists a game coming off the bench for the Pistons (22-36), who will be short-handed against the visiting Hawks (31-23), who have the fifth-best record in the Eastern Conference.
