Roy Hibbert apologizes, says he has spoken to league already

Feb 27, 2013, 2:58 PM EDT

Roy Hibbert is still going to get suspended. The pushing match between Hibbert and David Lee Tuesday night escalated when Hibbert threw Stephen Curry to the ground.

But the damage may be mitigated some after Hibbert apologized and spoke to the league about what had happened.

Hibbert is not a guy with a history of this kind of thing, so it may well be just one game. But who knows how the league will come down on this — you’ll have an easier time finding consistency in DeMarcus Cousins game than in the league office when it comes to suspensions.

I do love that Hibbert’s mom gave him grief.

Expect the suspension of Hibbert to become official from the league later Wednesday or maybe Thursday morning.
