ISTANBUL -- Nenad Krstic of the Oklahoma City Thunder has been suspended for Serbia's next three games for throwing a chair during last week's brawl with Greece.

Basketball's governing body said Thursday that three other players will miss two games. FIBA also fined both national federations.

Serbia's Milos Teodosic is banned two games. His fight with Greece's Antonis Fotsis started the melee.

Greece will be without Fotsis and Sofoklis Schortsanitis for its first two games of the world championships, which start Saturday in four cities in Turkey.

FIBA had promised strong action after the brawl and says all parties have the right to an appeal.
