Balkman Earns One-Game Suspension

A day after Ronaldo Balkman “acted primitively” (as Sasha put it) when he threw a elbow across the bow of Lakers Guard Sasha Vujacic the NBA hit him with a one-game suspension and assessed a Flagrant Foul, Penalty Two.

Balkman, who was not given a technical or flagrant foul when the incident occurred at the 7:07 mark in the second period, will not be available for the Knicks game against the Jazz tonight.
