NEW YORK (AP) - Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade has been suspended one game without pay by the NBA for flailing his leg and making contact with the groin of Charlotte Bobcats' Ramon Sessions.
The suspension was announced Thursday by Stu Jackson, the NBA's executive vice president for basketball operations.
The incident happened with 8:12 left in the fourth quarter of the Heat's 105-92 victory over the Bobcats on Wednesday night. Sessions was called for a foul on the play.
Wade will serve the suspension Friday night when the Heat visit the Detroit Pistons.
