The Washington Times Daily - - Sports -

AT­LANTA | Rookie guard Den­nis Schroder of the At­lanta Hawks has been sus­pended for one game with­out pay for strik­ing DeMar­cus Cousins of the Sacra­mento Kings in the groin.

The sus­pen­sion was an­nounced by Rod Thorn, the NBA’s pres­i­dent of bas­ket­ball op­er­a­tions. Schroder sat out Thurs­day night’s game in Den­ver against the Nuggets.

With just less than 10 min­utes left in At­lanta’s 105-100 vic­tory on Tues­day night, Schroder hit Cousins with his left hand while try­ing to get around a pick near the top of the key.
