CHICAGO, March 23 (UPI) -- Chicago Bulls television analyst Kendall Gill was suspended for the NBA the season over a fight with another TV sportscaster, Comcast SportsNet Chicago said.

Gill got into a physical altercation with Tim Doyle of the Big Ten Network during a recent taping at the CSN studio.

"We have made a decision to not have Kendall Gill appear on our air for the remainder of the Bulls season," the station said in a written statement. "We will re-evaluate our current position on this matter during the off-season."

Gill and Doyle scuffled over remarks Doyle made in response to Gill's take on a controversial call by the officials in Chicago's Monday night overtime loss to the Denver Nuggets.
