The Portland Trail Blazers suspended forward Rasheed Wallace for tonight's regular-season finale against the visiting San Antonio Spurs for throwing a towel into the face of teammate Arvydas Sabonis during an argument in Sunday's loss to the Lakers.

It was the second time this season Wallace has been suspended by Coach Mike Dunleavy for conduct deemed detrimental to the team.
