Found February 25, 2013 on NBA Injury News:
Everyone knew it was coming.  As soon as the Detroit Pistons' Will Bynum punched Tyler Hansbrough, the suspension was impending.  It has now officially come down.  Bynum has been suspended one game by the league for his actions. The shot was as flagrant as they get, but to the referees' credit, they were on top of things.  Bynum was given a flagrant-two immediately.  Now, he will have to sit out one game for his actions.Bynum is in his sixth season in the NBA.  He played for Georgia Tech and Arizona in college and had success at both schools.  In the NBA, he has been a solid player, but far from a star.  He has averaged 8.0 points and 3.2 assists per game in his career. So far this season, he is averaging 9.4 points and 3.8 assists per game.Follow @hoopsinjurynews!function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://www.nbainjurynews.com//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs"); var _gaq = _gaq || []; _gaq.push(['_setAccount', 'UA-34100676-1']); _gaq.push(['_trackPageview']); (function() { var ga = document.createElement('script'); ga.type = 'text/javascript'; ga.async = true; ga.src = ('https:' == document.location.protocol ?
