Udonis Haslem Suspended 1 Game For Flagrant Foul

Dexter Pittman wasn't the only Miami Heat player to draw a suspension following a rough Game 5 against Indiana. The NBA suspended Udonis Haslem for Game 6 of the Eastern Conference semifinal after he was accessed a flagrant foul in Game 5.

With 9:26 to play in the second quarter, Haslem fouled Indiana's Tyler Hansbrough as Hansbrough attempted a shot. Instead of contesting the shot, Haslem pushed Hansbrough to the ground, drawing a flagrant one foul. The incident was the result of a play that occurred a few possessions prior, when Hansbrough was whistled for a flagrant foul of his own for hitting Dwyane Wade in the head.

Haslem is averaging 6.0 points and 4.4 rebounds in 16.8 minutes per game against Indiana.
