NBA suspends Kings’ Thomas Robinson two games for flagrant elbow
The NBA has suspended Sacramento’s Thomas Robinson for two games without pay for elbowing Detroit’s Jonas Jerebko in the throat Wednesday night.
Robinson was assessed a flagrant-2 foul and ejected.
Jonathan Santiago of Kings blog Cowbell Kingdom suggested that Jerebko had already gotten under Robinson’s skin prior to the skirmish.
“According to those seated courtside, Jonas Jerebko’s constant chirping may have led Thomas Robinson to throw the elbow that got him ejected from the game.”
