Around the NBA

KNICKS: Forward Zach Randolph was suspended one game without pay by the NBA on Friday for throwing his headband at a referee.

Randolph was called for a foul by Tony Brothers with 1:47 remaining in the third quarter of the Knicks' 107-97 loss to Sacramento on Wednesday. Randolph took off his headband and threw it in the direction of Brothers, landing near his feet.

Randolph, who averages 17.7 points and a team-high 10.0 rebounds, missed New York's game at San Antonio on Friday.

PACERS: The trial of Indiana players Jamaal Tinsley and Marquis Daniels on charges stemming from a bar fight has been delayed a third time.

The trial was to begin Jan. 14, but was rescheduled for March 17 because a new prosecutor is handling the case, a prosecutor's office spokesman said.

Tinsley was indicted on a felony charge of intimidation and misdemeanor counts of battery, disorderly conduct and intimidation in connection with a fight last February at the 8 Seconds Saloon. Daniels is charged with battery and disorderly conduct, both misdemeanors.
