NBA: No suspension for Rasheed
Rasheed Wallace is spared a suspension after the NBA rescinded two technicals
Without the ruling, Wallace would have had 16 -- an automatic suspension
It appeared that Wallace would face a one-game suspension because he picked up two technical fouls in Wednesday night's 90-87 loss to the New Orleans Hornets. NBA rules dictate that a player must be sidelined for a game when he reaches 16 technical fouls.
However, technicals Wallace received Dec. 23 and Feb. 7 were rescinded, NBA vice president of basketball communications Tim Frank said in an e-mail Thursday to The Associated Press. That leaves Wallace with 14 this season.
