Warriors' Clifford Robinson suspended five games
February 1, 2005
NEW YORK (AP) -- Clifford Robinson of the Golden State Warriors was suspended for five games without pay Tuesday for violating the NBA's drug policy.
Robinson's suspension begins with Wednesday night's game against the Sacramento Kings.
A 16-year veteran, Robinson averaged 8.8 points and 2.6 rebounds in 40 games this season.
Robinson was limited to five minutes in a 96-85 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers on Saturday night. He had missed the previous four games because of
stiffness in his lower back. He is eligible to return Feb. 11 against New Orleans.
