NEW YORK -- Miami forward Chris Andersen has been suspended for Saturday night's Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals for his altercation with Indiana's Tyler Hansbrough in Game 5.

The NBA also upgraded Andersen's foul to a Flagrant 2, which would have meant an automatic ejection had it been called at the time.

Andersen knocked Hansbrough to the floor from behind with 9:02 left in the second quarter, then shoved him backward after Hansbrough got up.

The NBA also says in its statement that Andersen "resisted efforts to bring the altercation to an end."
