Bell and Jack suspended by league for driving violations

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Charlie Bell of the Golden State Warriors and Jarrett Jack of the New Orleans Hornets were each suspended one game by the NBA on Wednesday for separate reckless driving incidents.

The NBA said each player will be suspended for their team's first game of the 2011-12 regular season for which they are able to play.

Bell received his suspension after pleading no contest in court to reckless driving in California while Jack's suspension was the result of a nolo contendere plea to reckless driving in Georgia.
