Man, I was playing NBA 2k9 last night, Gordon dove for a looseball and seperated his shoulder in the game. I hope that doesn't happen in real life because 2 yrs ago when I was playing on my PS2, Livingston dislocated his knee in my game 2 nights before he actually had that gruesome injury in real life. My game systems are cursed if it happens again.

Nowitzki, Mavs await NBA discipline


Quote:

The Dallas Mavericks won't know until Sunday morning if Dirk Nowitzki can play in their afternoon road game against the Los Angeles Clippers.

The league office on Saturday began reviewing Nowitzki's flagrant foul/penalty 2 on Utah's Matt Harpring from Friday night, which resulted in Nowitzki's ejection early in the fourth quarter of Dallas' 97-88 defeat.

As of Saturday night, no ruling on whether Nowitzki will receive a suspension or fine had yet been made, according to league spokesman Tim Frank.

The Mavericks will be hoping that the fact Nowitzki was immediately ejected from a typically physical game with the Jazz will spare him further punishment beyond a fine. Yet a similar incident involving Boston's Kevin Garnett and Milwaukee's Andrew Bogut in November resulted in a one-game suspension for Garnett.

In explaining Garnett's one-game ban, NBA executive vice president of basketball operations Stu Jackson told ESPN.com on Nov. 18 that league rules make a suspension automatic "when a player swings or punches with a fist or open hand, regardless if it makes contact or not."

Nowitzki was ejected for swinging his arm in response to under-the-basket contact from Harpring, with video replays indicating that -- although it was a backhanded swipe -- Nowitzki made a closed-fist connection with Harpring's face on his follow-through.

If Nowitzki cannot avoid a suspension for Sunday's game, it'll be the second successive season that he's been suspended after an incident in Utah. A rough takedown in March of Jazz forward Andrei Kirilenko -- for which Nowitzki was not ejected -- resulted in a one-game suspension.

A one-game suspension this season would cost him 1/110th of his $18,077,904 salary, which comes to $164,344.58.

Nowitzki did not speak to the media Friday after the game and declined comment when reached Saturday. But team officials confirmed that their star player was interviewed Saturday by league officials for his account, since every flagrant foul/penalty 2 is reviewed by Jackson's office.

Dirk Nowitzki has been suspended for one game by the NBA for the punch he threw at Utah's Matt Harpring on Friday night.

Nowitzki will miss today's 2:30 p.m. game against the Los Angeles Clippers.

The league informed the team early today of the punishment.

The incident happened with 9:48 left in the game. After a scrum under the basket, Nowitzki, who had grown tired of the physical nature of the Utah defense, flung his right arm at Harpring. The refs called a flagrant foul, penalty 2, and ejected Nowitzki after reviewing the tape and deeming that the punch he threw was with a closed fist.

We had no chance without Randolph. Dallas was beating us to every loose ball and hustling each time. We had no low post offense and it was almost sad that Marcus Camby had to be the main scorer in the first.
