MIAMI (AP) -- Heat forward Udonis Haslem has been suspended by
the NBA for Game 6 of the Miami-Indiana series.

Haslem committed a flagrant foul against Indiana's Tyler
Hansbrough during the second quarter of Game 5 on Tuesday night,
shortly after Hansbrough struck Miami's Dwyane Wade and opened a
cut over his right eye.

Haslem and Hansbrough were both assessed flagrant-1 fouls on the
respective plays. If they were issued flagrant-2 fouls, they would
have been ejected. Hansbrough's foul was upgraded Wednesday to a
flagrant-2, but he's eligible to play in Game 6, while Haslem
cannot.

Also Wednesday, Miami reserve forward Dexter Pittman was
suspended three games for his flagrant foul against Indiana's Lance
Stephenson late in Game 5. Pittman has played only six minutes in
the playoffs.
