Pistons’ Rasheed Wallace suspended one game

New York, NY (Sports Network) – Detroit’s Rasheed Wallace has been suspended
for one game without pay after receiving his 16th technical foul of the season
in Sunday’s 109-102 win over Phoenix.

Wallace was hit with his most recent technical late in the third quarter and
will miss Tuesday’s game against the Hornets at the Palace. Wallace was nearly
late for Sunday’s game, arriving 20 minutes before tip-off. He cited the clock
change as his reason.

For the rest of the season, under NBA rules, Wallace will receive an
additional one-game suspension for every other technical foul he receives.

Wallace is averaging 15.5 points and 6.9 rebounds this season for the Pistons,
who hold an NBA-best record 59-14.
