(Reuters) - Milwaukee Bucks forward Drew Gooden has been suspended one game without pay for a flagrant foul against Gerald Henderson of the Charlotte Bobcats, the National Basketball Association (NBA) said on Tuesday.
The incident, in which Gooden made excessive contact with Henderson’s head, took place in the third quarter of the Bucks’ 96-95 loss to the Bobcats in Charlotte on Monday.
Gooden will serve his suspension on Tuesday when the Bucks host the Minnesota Timberwolves in their regular season home opener.
