NEW YORK (AP) - Chicago Bulls guard Richard Hamilton was suspended one game without pay by the NBA on Saturday for hitting Toronto's DeMar DeRozan the previous night.

With about 5 1/2 minutes remaining in the third quarter of the Raptors' 97-88 win on Friday, Hamilton hit DeRozan in the face with his elbow. Hamilton was whistled for a Flagrant 2 and ejected.

He will miss the Bulls' game at Miami on Sunday.
