Rasheed Wallace suspended for a game after 16th technical of the season


NEW YORK (AP) – Detroit’s Rasheed Wallace was given an automatic one-game suspension Monday after receiving his 16th technical foul of the season.

Wallace will sit out Tuesday’s game against the New Orleans Hornets. On Sunday, he didn’t seem concerned about the impending suspension after the Pistons’ 109-102 win over the Phoenix Suns.

“I don’t care about No. 16,” Wallace said. “I’m just going to be cheering from home.”

He will get an additional one-game suspension after every two technicals he gets for the remainder of the season.
