Jazz suspend Stevenson for unspecified time period

Associated Press

SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- The Utah Jazz suspended guard DeShawn Stevenson on Monday, hours before their playoff game against the Sacramento Kings, for conduct detrimental to the team.

Stevenson was sent back to Salt Lake City, the Jazz announced in a brief press release that didn't indicate the nature of his conduct. The release didn't specify the length of the suspension.

Stevenson, a third-year pro who was drafted by the Jazz directly out of his Fresno high school, played just one minute in Utah's 96-90 loss to the Kings in Game 1. He was a disappointment this season, averaging just 4.6 points per game in a steadily dwindling role.

He practiced with the team on Sunday.
