Sacramento Kingss: Forward Corliss Williamson was suspended one game by the NBA on Sunday for hitting Portland's Joel Przybilla in the head.

Williamson knocked Przybilla down in the fourth quarter of the Kings' 119-115 win Friday. Przybilla got up and shouted at Williamson, and the two had to be restrained by teammates. Williamson was called for a flagrant foul.

He missed Sunday's game against the Lakers.

San Antonio Spurs: The Spurs placed center Rasho Nesterovic on the injured list with a left ankle sprain before their game with the Warriors.

Nesterovic, averaging 5.9 points and 6.6 rebounds, scored eight points in 20 minutes in the Spurs' 125-124 double-overtime victory over the Clippers on Saturday night.

Linton Johnson, who has played in only one game this season because of a stress fracture in his left knee, was activated from the injured list to take Nesterovic's spot.
