Los Angeles Laker reserve big man Ronny Turiaf, ejected with a flagrant-2 foul on Jazz backup point guard Ronnie Price in Game 4 of their NBA Western Conference semifinal series, will not be suspended for Wednesday's Game 5.
"No further action ... Stands as called," an NBA spokesman told the Deseret News via e-mail Monday night.
Price, clobbered by Turiaf on a drive to the basket in Sunday's second quarter, needed four stitches to close a cut over his right eye that was sustained after he hit his head on the floor.
The Utah Valley State product returned to finish the game.Jazz owner Larry H. Miller called (during a Sunday appearance on KSL-TV) for a suspension after watching a replay of the foul, but Price said after Sunday's game that he did not think one was warranted.
