NEW YORK, March 20 (UPI) -- Los Angeles Lakers center Andrew Bynum and Phoenix Suns guard Aaron Brooks have both been suspended, the NBA announced Sunday.

Bynum and Brooks were involved in separate March 18 incidents.


Bynum drew a two-game suspension for committing a flagrant foul against Minnesota forward Michael Beasley with 6:16 left in the fourth period of the Lakers' 106-98 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves.

He was set to miss Sunday's game against Portland and a March 22 contest against the Suns.

Brooks, meanwhile, garnered a one-game suspension for throwing a ball toward a game official, hitting him in the leg in the fourth period of Phoenix's 108-97 win over Golden State.

Brooks was to miss the Suns' game at the Los Angeles Clippers Sunday.
