NBA G League suspends three players

NEW YORK  The NBA G League announced today that Sioux Falls Skyforce guard Mychal Mulder has been suspended one game without pay for making contact with a game official and escalating an on-court altercation while Birmingham Squadron forwards James Kelly, Sr. and Kelan Martin have each been suspended one game without pay for leaving the bench area and escalating that altercation.

The incident, which resulted in the ejections of Kelly, Sr. and Mulder, occurred with 7:23 remaining in the fourth quarter of Sioux Falls’ 106-99 win over Birmingham on Friday, Feb. 3 at the Sanford Pentagon in Sioux Falls.

The one-game suspensions issued to the two Squadron players will be served on a staggered basis to ensure, per league rule, that Birmingham has eight healthy players available to play in its next two games.

Mulder and Kelly, Sr. will serve their suspensions when the Skyforce hosts the Squadron on Sunday, Feb. 5 in Sioux Falls.  Martin will serve his suspension when the Squadron visit the Memphis Hustle on Tuesday, Feb.7 in Memphis.
