NBA Executive Vice President of Basketball Operations, Stu Jackson, announced today that Andrew Bynum has been suspended for two games for his Flagrant Foul Penalty Two that he received on Friday, March 18 vs the Minnesota Timberwolves.
Bynum will be suspended without pay for the Lakers game tonight vs the Portland Trailblazers, and Tuesday’s game vs. the Phoenix Suns.
The Flagrant Foul Penalty Two, which automatically ejected Andrew Bynum from the game, occurred with 6:16 remaining in the fourth period. Michael Beasley drove baseline, and Bynum clearly fouled Beasley without going for the ball.
The Lakers are 11-1 since the All-Star break, and Bynum is one of the big reasons for the Lakers recent success.
In the last 5 games Bynum is shooting 62% from the field, while averaging 14.2 points, 15 rebounds, and 2 blocks per game.
