LOS ANGELES, United States - The Toronto Raptors suspended Spanish power forward Serge Ibaka for their NBA game against the Atlanta Hawks on Friday after he was involved in an altercation with a team staff member.

The Raptors said Ibaka violated team rules in the incident, which took place after the Raptors' 124-107 loss at Oklahoma City on Wednesday.

"Both parties have apologized. We've discussed this internally as a team, and we won't be discussing it any further," Raptors president Masai Ujiri said. "Now we're focused on moving forward together, and we look forward to having Serge back in the lineup."

Ibaka is averaging 13.8 points on 50.5 percent shooting and six rebounds in 30 games this season.
