The NBA suspended Phoenix Suns forward P.J. Tucker for one game for elbowing Los Angeles Clippers forward Blake Griffin in the chin during the Suns' 112-105 loss to the Clippers on Monday, the NBA announced.

Tucker will miss Wednesday's game against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Tucker got tangled up with Griffin with about five minutes remaining in the game and hit Griffin while they were on the ground.

MAHONEY: The Fundamentals: The frustratingly good Blake Griffin

“He was standing there and Blake takes him to the ground and rolls on top of him and he just tries to get him off,” Suns coach Jeff Hornacek said, via AZCentral. "I don't know why that would be a suspension.That shouldn't even have been a foul.”
