Magic star center Dwight Howard has been suspended for one game after NBA disciplinary officials declined to rescind an 18th technical foul. This is Howard’s second suspension this season due to his number of technicals. He will be forced to sit out the team’s Sunday afternoon home game against the first place Chicago Bulls. Howard picked up his latest technical foul during the second quarter of Wednesday night’s overtime victory over the Charlotte Bobcats in Charlotte. He became upset and rolled the ball out of bounds after a referee whistled him for taking more than 10 seconds to shoot a free throw.
