The Supreme Council On Order And Discipline has ruled.

I can't say that I have a problem with this. I would have been fine with no suspensions (of course) but at least they also gave Danny Granger a game as well and fined Watson for starting the entire mess.

Jason not only came at Danny hard with a forearm to keep him off Frye but he kept jawing at him as well. All in all, a reasonable outcome.

Official Press Release follows:

 NEW YORK, March 9, 2010 - The Indiana Pacers' Danny Granger and the Phoenix Suns' Channing Frye have each been suspended one game without pay for their participation in an altercation on March 6. Frye was suspended for throwing a punch at Granger, and Granger was suspended for fighting with Frye. In addition, Indiana's Earl Watson was fined $30,000 for instigating and adding to the escalation of an on-court incident.  Indiana's Roy Hibbert and Phoenix's Jason Richardson have each been fined $25,000 for adding to the escalation of an on-court incident. The fines and suspensions were announced today by Stu Jackson, NBA Executive Vice President, Basketball Operations.

The incident occurred with 46.7 seconds remaining in the third period of Phoenix's 113-105 win over Indiana at US Airways Center in Phoenix on Saturday, March 6.

Frye will serve his suspension March 12, when the Suns host the Los Angeles Lakers at US Airways Center. Granger will serve his suspension tonight when the Pacers host the Philadelphia 76ers at Conseco Fieldhouse in Indianapolis.
