Ibaka, Johnson receive one-game suspensions

Josh Richardson Miami Heat

A propensity for physical confrontation has earned Raptors forward Serge Ibaka another one-game suspension.

Miami is just three games behind Cleveland and five behind Toronto, with Boston holding the top seed with 33 wins. Before the last-second loss to the Heat on a defensive breakdown, they had tied their club record with 12 straight home wins.

Johnson, the ex-Raptor, was also suspended for one game, missing Miami's outing Wednesday in Indianapolis. The Raptors sat him down for a game because he was involved in a physical altercation with an unnamed member of the team's staff following a game in Oklahoma City on December 27.

Problem is, the Raptors are not expected to send their best unit onto the floor, so using the upcoming games as a litmus test for their own progress will be hard.

The fight began with 7:50 remaining in the third quarter of the Heat's 90-89 victory over the Raptors on Tuesday night in Toronto. It is not known how long Lowry will be out.

Lue also said there will be no changes in his lineup for the game Thursday.

Ibaka and former Raptors forward James Johnson threw punches and were ejected from Tuesday's Raptors-Heat game.

The league also fined Toronto's DeMar DeRozan $25,000 USA and Miami's Goran Dragic $10,000 for a short post-game brouhaha "during which DeRozan attempted to forcefully shove Dragic with an open hand". That's a marked increase from the 24.8 per cent of overall scoring from long-distance shots past year.

-Derrick Jones Jr. got off to a quick start and scored Miami's first six points of the game. Last season, Toronto finished 22nd with an average of 24.3. "They've got a lot of young guys who are playing well". And behind them, there really aren't any great teams. Defensively, also they're pretty good.

While Cook went on to win the 2009 National Basketball Association three-point contest (the third of four Heat players to win the crown), Ellington, now playing for his seventh National Basketball Association team in his 10th season, has never had a chance to participate in the league's premier All-Star shooting competition.

"We thought (Shumpert) he was (closer to a return)", Lue said.

With four players out due to injury the Heat with an eight-man rotation and seven of those players scored 11 points or more.
