Indiana Pacers center Roy Hibbert will be suspended for Thursday night's game against the Los Angeles Clippers for his involvement in a late game skirmish between the Pacers and Golden State Warriors according to Mike Wells.

Wells tweeted the news shortly after Sam Amick broke the news that Warriors' forward David Lee would also be suspended a game.

Elsewhere in the dust-up, Lance Stephenson, Stephen Curry, and Klay Thompson will be fined $35,000 for their role in the escalation of the altercation, but won't miss any time. Wells expects the Pacers to start Ian Mahinmi in Hibbert's absence in the game against the Clippers. Hibbert apologized earlier, saying he had spoken to the league, even hearing from his mother about the event.
