Dwight Howard suspended 1 game

New York, NY ( - Houston Rockets center Dwight Howard has been suspended one game without pay after earning his fourth Flagrant foul point of the postseason.

Howard was whistled for a common foul after his left forearm made contact with Golden State guard Andre Iguodala's neck while setting a screen in the final minutes of the Warriors' Western Conference finals-clinching victory Wednesday night.

The foul has been upgraded to a Flagrant-1 foul after a review, meaning Howard must sit out the first game of the 2015-16 regular season for which he is physically able to play.
