Aaron Brooks Suspended By NBA, Threw Ball At Official In Friday's Game

Phoenix Suns backup point guard Aaron Brooks was suspended for one game by the NBA according to a report by Arizona Republic beat writer, Paul Coro. Brooks received a technical foul in the fourth quarter of the Suns game on Friday after he threw the ball towards an official. The ball hit the official in the leg. Brooks appeared to be upset about not receiving a foul call on a drive to the basket.

The news comes just a few hours before the Suns are scheduled to play the Los Angeles Clippers today in a 12:30 game. Guard Zabian Dowdell will likely get the minutes playing behind Steve Nash.

Brooks was suspended once before this season by his former team, the Houston Rockets. In a game on February 5 against the Memphis Grizzlies, Brooks was taken out of the game and according to this report in the Houston Chronicle, instead of heading to the bench, he went to the locker room. The team suspended him for the next game.
