Kings' Carl Landry suspended 1 game for leaving bench area

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) The NBA has suspended Sacramento Kings forward Carl Landry one game without pay for leaving the bench area during an altercation in Sunday's loss to the Utah Jazz.

The league announced Landry's suspension Monday. He will sit out Tuesday's home game against the Minnesota Timberwolves.

The incident occurred after Omri Casspi's dunk in the fourth quarter. Sacramento's Derrick Williams shoved Utah's Rudy Gobert under the basket, and Landry ran onto the floor trying to separate the two.

Williams was called for a technical foul. The Jazz won 101-95.
