Dwight Howard suspended for 1 game after foul upgraded

HOUSTON (AP) Houston Rockets center Dwight Howard was suspended without pay for one game Friday after getting his fourth flagrant foul point in the postseason.

Howard will serve the suspension in the first game next season that he is physically able to play.

The foul in Game 5 of the Western Conference finals was ruled a common foul during the game, but was upgraded to a flagrant foul 1 after a review about the league office. It came when he made what the NBA called unnecessary contact with his forearm to the neck area of Golden State's Andre Iguodala.
