Carter elbowed Adams in the head with just over four minutes to play in the third quarter of the Mavs' 107-93 loss to the Thunder in Oklahoma City. The elbow appeared to be in retaliation for an Adams elbow just moments before:
Carter was ejected from the game for his elbow, and with this suspension, he'll be forced to miss Friday night's game against the Minnesota Timberwolves. Carter will miss out on $35,333 thanks to the suspension, according to Dwain Price of the Star-Telegram.
After enjoying a solid campaign off the bench for the Mavs in 2012-13, Carter has gotten off to a slow start this season. The 36-year-old is averaging 9.2 points while shooting just 37.0 percent overall and 26.3 percent from three-point range.
