Pacers' Harrison Suspended Following Locker Room Outburst

Last updated on Saturday, March 8, 2008

(UNDATED) - Indiana Pacers center David Harrison has been suspended one game for “conduct detrimental to the team.”

The suspension stems from Thursday's loss at San Antonio. Harrison was called for a technical foul in the last minute of the game, after contact between he and Spur Matt Bonner led Harrison to lose his cool.

Harrison was taken out of the game and sent to the locker room where he reportedly lost his temper. After a tantrum, Harrison needed stitches on his head.

Harrison will sit out tomorrow afternoon's game at Cleveland. It is Harrison's second suspension of the season. He was suspended for five games in January for failing his third drug test.

The pacers are 24-and-38, now in 11th place in the Eastern Conference, after losing two straight games and 15 of their last 20.
