Grizzlies Barnes suspended two games


LOS ANGELES: Memphis Grizzlies guard Matt Barnes was slapped with a two-game ban by the National Basketball Association on Monday (Tuesday in Manila) for a physical altercation with New York Knicks’ coach Derek Fisher earlier this year. The league, which conducted its own probe of the incident, said Barnes had threatened Fisher in the October 3 altercation which took place at the Redondo Beach, California home of Barnes’ estranged wife Gloria Govan. Barnes’ suspension will begin when the Grizzlies face the Miami Heat on Tuesday and he will also miss Saturday’s game against the Utah Jazz. Barnes and Fisher played together on the Los Angeles Lakers from 2010 to 2012.
