MIAMI, Feb. 5 (UPI) -- Miami Heat guard Gary Payton was suspended without pay for Monday's game against the Charlotte Bobcats after verbally abusing officials last weekend.
Payton was ejected just before halftime of Miami's 117-98 win over the Milwaukee Bucks Saturday. He went on to berate official Mark Davis, apparently using obscenities, before leaving the court.
Payton, 38, is averaging 5.6 points and 2.9 assists per game this season.
