Heat’s Haslem suspended for Game 6 of series
MIAMI (AP) — Heat forward Udonis Haslem has been suspended by the NBA for 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.
