Default No suspension for Artest after NBA downgrades foul

Source: Houston Chronicle

The NBA reduced the flagrant foul, penalty two assessed to Rockets guard Ron Artest on Friday to a penalty one, eliminating any chance that he could be suspended for Sunday’s Game 4 against the Lakers.

Artest fouled the Lakers’ Pau Gasol in the last minute of the Rockets’ loss on Friday and was ejected from a second consecutive game. NBA executive vice president Stu Jackson reviewed the video on Saturday and reduced the penalty.
