NBA notes

Kings: Leading scorer Kevin Martin has a hairline fracture in his left wrist.


An MRI taken Thursday revealed a non displaced hairline fracture of the navicular bone in Martin's left wrist. The team says treatment options are currently being evaluated.

- Forward Andres Nocioni was arrested early Thursday on suspicion of drunk driving.

Sacramento police Sgt. Norm Leong said Nocioni was pulled over around 2 a.m. in downtown Sacramento when an officer noticed his car weaving. The officer noticed an odor of alcohol and conducted a field test before booking Nocioni on suspicion of driving under the influence.

The team said it would wait for the league to decide on potential discipline.

NO FINES: The NBA will not penalize Chris Paul or Rajon Rondo for an incident between them after a recent game in Boston.

The point guards had been assessed matching technical fouls in the second quarter after they got tangled up under the basket.

League spokesman Tim Frank also said Thursday the league won't take action against Paul from a game at New York on Monday. Knicks forward Al Harrington came up with a loose ball after a Hornets turnover with about 51/2 minutes left. Paul dove on top of him and made contact with Harrington's head.
