NEW YORK - Miami Heat forward Chris Andersen has been suspended for game six of the NBA Eastern Conference finals after shoving Indiana Pacers forward Tyler Hansbrough in game five.

The incident occurred with 9:02 remaining in the second quarter of Miami's 90-79 win over the Pacers in Miami on Thursday.

Andersen elbowed Hansbrough to the floor, and after the two bumped chests he shoved the Pacers player, then "resisted efforts to bring the altercation to an end," the NBA said in a statement.
