Bobcats' Tyrus Thomas suspended for elbowing opponent in head

Thomas, who leads Charlotte in blocked shots per game, was ejected late in his team's 88-81 loss on Saturday when he elbowed Emeka Okafor of the New Orleans Hornets.

The league said Thomas will serve his suspension when Charlotte visit the Philadelphia 76ers on Monday.
