Ricky Davis suspended

According to the Pioneer Press, Davis won't be playing in Sunday's game at Phoenix:

Timberwolves veteran Ricky Davis will be suspended one game for his actions during Friday night's game against the Detroit Pistons, Wolves vice president of basketball operations Kevin McHale announced Saturday afternoon.

Davis refused to re-enter the game against Detroit during the third quarter. Earlier, he had been substituted out of the game in favor of Randy Foye and temporarily left the court and went to the locker room before being convinced to return.

Davis will miss Sunday's game at Phoenix. McHale said there would be no further discipline by the team.

Coach Dwane Casey said that Davis apologized to teammates Saturday morning.
