PHOENIX - The NBA has suspended Phoenix starting forward P.J. Tucker for one game for elbowing Blake Griffin in the chin in the Suns' loss to the Clippers in Los Angeles on Monday night.

Tucker will sit out Wednesday night's home game against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Tucker was ejected after the altercation. The elbowing occurred as the two fell to the floor entangled while going for a rebound with 5½ minutes to go in the game.
