Memphis Grizzlies guard Tony Allen was suspended one game without pay for kicking Los Angeles Clippers guard Chris Paul in the face, the NBA announced Tuesday.
The incident, for which Allen was assessed a flagrant 2 foul and ejected, occurred with 1:51 remaining in the first quarter of the Grizzlies' 106-102 win over the Clippers on Monday night at the Staples Center.
Allen will serve his suspension on Wednesday when the Grizzlies play the Golden State Warriors at Oracle Arena.
Allen apologized to Paul on Twitter.

--Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry was diagnosed with a mild concussion after hitting his head on the court during the fourth quarter of Monday night victory over the Utah Jazz, the team announced.
Curry will not play in Wednesday night's game against the Memphis Grizzlies and his status moving forward is day-to-day.
In 10 games this season, Curry is averaging 19.9 points, 8.7 assists, 3.7 rebounds and 1.70 steals in 32.7 minutes per contest.

--New York Knicks point guard Raymond Felton could miss multiple games with a pinched nerve in his left hip, joining forward Metta World Peace on the sideline.
Felton is also dealing with a hamstring injury. In his place, coach Mike Woodson used Beno Udrih as a starter in Wednesday's game against the Pistons in Detroit.
World Peace had fluid drained from his left knee. He didn't travel to Detroit but isn't expected to miss significant time.

--Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade sat out Tuesday's home game against the Atlanta Hawks, part of the team's ongoing plan to baby his surgically repaired left knee.
Wade could be back in action Wednesday when the Heat play the Magic in Orlando.
