OKC's Thabeet gets 1-game ban for head-butt
Oklahoma City center Hasheem Thabeet has been suspended one game without pay by the NBA for head-butting the Pelicans' Greg Stiemsma.

The NBA says Monday that Thabeet will miss the first game that he is eligible and physically able to play in during the regular season.
