Miami Heat guard Mario Chalmers was suspended one game without pay for throwing a forearm and making contact with the head of Dallas Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki, the NBA announced Saturday.
The incident drew a Flagrant Foul 2 and Chalmers was ejected. It occurred with 5:01 left in the fourth quarter of Miami's 110-104 win at home Friday. Chalmers had four points, three assists and two rebounds in 24 minutes.
Chalmers will serve the suspension Saturday night at the Charlotte Bobcats.
