Detroit Pistons guard Carlos Arroyo has been suspended one game without pay for making physical contact with a game official.

Stu Jackson, NBA senior vice president basketball operations, announced the suspension Wednesday.

The incident occurred with 7:43 remaining in the fourth quarter of the Pistons' 96-86 road victory over the New Orleans/Oklahoma City Hornets at Ford Center in Oklahoma City.

Arroyo will serve his suspension Thursday night when the Pistons visit the San Antonio Spurs.
