NEW YORK (AP) The NBA has suspended Sacramento Kings forward Thomas Robinson for two games for elbowing Detroit's Jonas Jerebko in the neck.

The play occurred with 10 minutes left in Sacramento's 105-103 win on Wednesday night. Robinson, the fifth overall pick in this year's draft out of Kansas, was immediately ejected.

Robinson will miss the Kings' games against San Antonio on Friday and the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday.
