Andres Nocioni will not be in uniform tonight when Sacramento takes on Oklahoma City, instead he will be serving the first game of his two-game suspension handed down by the league.
Nocioni was arrested in Sacramento for a DUI on Nov. 5 and last week pled no contest to the charge. His attorney said at the time he was going to take his medicine and move on.
That medicine includes a two-game suspension courtesy the NBA. That will cover tonight as well as tomorrow night’s game in Houston. He can return Friday when the Kings take on the streaking Mavericks.
