Denver’s Kenyon Martin Suspended One Game

NEW YORK, Dec. 15, 2007 – Denver Nuggets forward Kenyon Martin has been suspended for one game without pay and assessed a Flagrant Foul, Penalty Two for flagrantly fouling Melvin Ely of the New Orleans Hornets by striking him in the head with an elbow, it was announced today by Stu Jackson, NBA Executive Vice President, Basketball Operations.

The incident occurred with 9:40 remaining in the second period of Denver’s 105-99 win over the New Orleans Hornets on Wednesday, Dec. 12 at the Pepsi Center. Martin will serve the suspension tonight when the Nuggets play the San Antonio Spurs at the AT&T Center.

In a written statement released by the team, Martin said he was disappointed to miss the game against the Spurs.

"What happened with Melvin in Wednesday's game was inadvertent. I apologized to him on the court and again after the game. He told me he knew it was an accident," Martin said in the statement.


its fair but i dont think was intentional at all. even Ely knew it wasnt. oh well. more rest for his knees i guess lol. now i really hope Duncan doesnt play tonight.

I think the rule should be altered, because like you say it wasn't intentional. I don't think it deserves a suspension. Similar with Al Horford. Total accident.

Oh c'mon. I remember that elbow, and Kenyon didn't even knew Ely was there. This is getting ridiculous...

i think a big fine would've been better. this is just a case of a guy protecting the ball after catching a rebound. he was reckless in doing it but it definitely wasnt on purpose. Kmart has a reputation for being a rough enforcer type guy but definitely not in this case.

so tonight is the Eddie Najera show now

Doesnt matter if its intentional or not. You´re elbows are in a very dangerous height and if you start swinging them around, you might just fracture someones eyesocket (and make them miss a game or two).

How is he suspended when Matt Barnes was not suspended for his hatchet job on Turiaf last night?

By the same logic, a player who moves close to someone to contest a or rebound, only to have the opposing player land on their foot and roll an ankle, causing them to miss a game or two, should be suspended. After all, it's dangerous to put your foot somewhere where someone else might land on it.

If you've ever played basketball, you know that elbows are part of the game, and if you looked at a game tape, I'm sure you'd find plenty of intentional elbows thrown. Now, because someone happened to get hurt by an unintentional elbow, it means a suspension? How does that make sense?

It was a reactionary move, that they just suspended him for due to him getting legitimately injured. It was far from intentional and just a sorry move by the NBA.
