Childress suspended, Nocioni fined for altercation

Updated:
NEW YORK (AP) _ Josh Childress of the Atlanta Hawks was suspended for two games without pay Friday for throwing a forearm to the head of Andres Nocioni of the Chicago Bulls.

Nocioni was fined $5,000 and given a flagrant foul penalty for making excessive contact with Childress, said Stu Jackson, NBA senior vice president of basketball operations.

The altercation happened with 2:33 left in the fourth quarter of the Hawks' 96-90 loss Wednesday. Replays showed Childress was hit in the throat by Nocioni's elbow, and Childress responded by hitting Nocioni in the back of the head. Childress was ejected.

He will sit out Friday's home game against Charlotte and Saturday's game at Milwaukee.
