Phoenix Suns forward Markieff Morris was suspended for one game without pay by the NBA on Thursday for elbowing the Oklahoma City's Serge Ibaka in the face.

Morris was ejected in the third quarter Tuesday night in the Suns' 88-76 exhibition victory. He will sit out the Suns' regular-season opener Wednesday night against Portland.
