Josh Smith Suspended

After an embarrassing 39-point loss to the Chicago Bulls on Monday in which his team scored just five points in the second quarter and 20 in the first half, Danny Ferry announced Wednesday that the team had suspended star forward Josh Smith for one game and fined him an undisclosed amount for "conduct detrimental to the team." Smith will serve his suspension on Wednesday, when the Hawks host the surging Brooklyn Nets.

From a Hawks team statement on the suspension, shared by InsideHoops.com:

“Josh and I discussed the issue and he understood and accepted this course of action. We are confident that he will respond positively, learn from this experience and come back with a renewed sense of purpose to the team moving forward,” Ferry said. [...]


Statement from Josh Smith on his suspension

“Clearly I am competitive and was frustrated by our recent losses. I understand and respect the team’s actions and just want to get back on the court to do whatever is necessary to help my teammates. I apologize for letting them down and apologize to our fans for not being available for tonight’s game.”
