NEW YORK (AP) - Miami forward Chris Andersen has been suspended for Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals for his altercation with Indiana’s Tyler Hansbrough in Game 5.

The NBA also upgraded Andersen’s foul to a Flagrant 2, which would have meant an automatic ejection had it been called at the time.

Andersen knocked Hansbrough to the floor from behind with 9:02 left in the second quarter, then shoved him backward after Hansbrough got up. The NBA also says Friday in a statement that Andersen “resisted efforts to bring the altercation to an end.”

Game 6 is Saturday night at Indianapolis.
