Lakers' Nick Young suspended

NEW YORK -- Los Angeles Lakers guard Nick Young was suspended one game without pay by the NBA on Thursday for throwing a punch at Phoenix's Goran Dragic in the first half the previous night.

Suns center Alex Len, ejected after receiving a flagrant foul 2 against Young, was fined $15,000, and teammate Marcus Morris was fined $25,000 for his involvement.

Young, who threw the punch with 7:33 left in the second quarter of the Suns' 121-114 win, will miss the Lakers' game at Boston on Friday night.
