Rip Hamilton has been suspended one game for “throwing an elbow and making contact with the face of” DeMar DeRozan during Chicago’s loss in Toronto on Friday, according to an official release.

The incident, which can be seen in the video clip above, occurred with 5:33 remaining in the third quarter. Hamilton received a flagrant-two foul at the time and was ejected for his actions.

Hamilton will serve the suspension on Sunday, when the Bulls face the Miami Heat in a nationally televised contest.

    The fake “officiating” in the NBA is an incredible embarrassment. Why does baseball and football look reasonable, while the NBA looks like every ruling is the product of trying to fix the games?
