Mavericks' Carter suspended 1 game for elbow hit

Dallas Mavericks forward Vince Carter has been suspended one game without pay for throwing an elbow and making contact with the head of Oklahoma City Thunder center Steven Adams.

Rod Thorn, President of NBA Basketball Operations, issued the suspension Friday.

Carter was assessed a Flagrant Foul 2 and ejected with 4:01 remaining in the third quarter of Dallas' 107-93 loss to the Thunder on Wednesday night.

Carter will serve his suspension Friday night when the Mavericks visit the Minnesota Timberwolves.
