(New York, NY) -- Boston Celtics star Kevin Garnett has been suspended for one game and Phoenix center Shaquille O'Neal has been fined $25,000 for
separate incidents over the weekend.
Garnett was penalized for hitting Milwaukee's Andrew Bogut in the face near the end of Saturday's game. Garnett will sit out Tuesday night when the Celtics host the New York Knicks.
O'Neal was fined for verbally abusing an official and failing to leave the court quickly after being ejected Sunday night against Detroit. The NBA issued the penalties Monday.
