Knicks lift James’ suspension

New York, NY (Sports Network) – New York Knicks center Jerome James’
indefinite suspension lasted one game, as the team activated him for Friday’s
game against Washington.

James was suspended on Monday for conduct detrimental to the team. He missed
the Knicks’ 140-133 triple-overtime win over Phoenix that night, but did
participate in three practices during the week, one of which was a voluntary
session.

James is averaging only 3.4 points and 2.5 rebounds in 14 games this season.

In other team news, the Knicks were without guards Jamal Crawford and Quentin
Richardson for their game versus the Wizards. Crawford missed the game with an
ankle injury, while Richardson sat out the contest with back spasms.
