Two-Game Suspension For 76ers' Okafor

- The Philadelphia 76ers announced Wednesday that rookie center Jahlil Okafor has been suspended for two games. The decision follows the release, to TMZ, of a second video of Okafor fighting on the streets of Boston last week.

“Jahlil is a very important part of our organization and our future,” the team said in a statement.  “While we are disappointed with his recent actions, we have faith in him as a valued member of the Sixers. We will provide the necessary resources to support him on his journey and will do our part to help him succeed both on and off the court. “
