Raptors suspend Murray

Toronto, ON (Sports Network) – The Toronto Raptors suspended forward
Lamond Murray for one game on Saturday for what they called conduct
detrimental to the team.

Murray criticized coach Kevin O’Neill after being upset with his lack of
playing time in Friday’s loss to New Jersey Friday night. He will miss
Toronto’s game on Sunday against the Sacramento Kings.

The 30-year-old Murray started the game due to injuries to Vince Carter and
Jalen Rose, but played just six minutes in the entire contest after allowing
Richard Jefferson to shoot 3-of-3 from the field.

Murray is averaging 6.5 points and 3.0 rebounds in 28 games this season.
