Houston’s Trevor Ariza and Gerald Green have both been suspended for two games for entering the Los Angeles Clippers’ locker room after a game earlier this week to confront another player.
The NBA announced the suspensions Wednesday.
Ariza and Green went into the Clippers’ locker room after a game Monday night in Los Angeles, one that was marred late by on-court chippiness. Ariza had been ejected from that game in the final moments, as was the Clippers’ Blake Griffin.
Speaking before the suspensions were announced Wednesday, Ariza said there were a “lot of different stories about what happened, none of them which were true.”
Ariza has started in all 40 of his appearances with the Rockets this season. Green has been with the Rockets for 10 games, all off the bench.
