Trevor Booker punches Roy Hibbert

Jazz forward Trevor Booker was ejected in the third quarter after hitting Lakers center Roy Hibbert in the face.

The NBA has suspended Utah Jazz forward Trevor Booker one game without pay for his altercation with Los Angeles Lakers center Roy Hibbert in a preseason game earlier this week.

Hibbert approached Booker during a stop in play at the 7:14 mark of the third quarter during Tuesday's game. The players got in each other's faces before Booker took an open-handed swing at Hibbert, who was held back by his teammates.

Shortly thereafter, Booker was assessed two technical fouls and ejected from the Jazz's 117-114 overtime win at the University of Hawaii. Hibbert remained in the game.

Assuming he is healthy, Booker will serve the suspension during the Jazz's season opener at the Detroit Pistons on Oct. 28.
