MANILA--PBA OIC Commissioner Willie Marcial on Tuesday each gave Mike Miranda, Eric Camson, and Raymond Almazan one-game suspensions for their respective parts in unsportsmanlike events over the weekend.

Miranda kicked Chris Ross's groin in retaliation to a hard foul given to him during the NLEX-San Miguel game on Friday night, which was merited as a Flagrant Foul Penalty 2.

Camson and Almazan, on the other hand, figured out in a brawl during the Kia-Rain Or Shine game on Saturday night. Both were given FFP2's each.

Camson was also fined PHP30,000, while Miranda and Almazan were slapped with PHP20,000 fines each.

Camson will sit out the Picanto's game on Wednesday night against the Meralco Bolts at the Smart Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City.

On the other hand, Miranda and Almazan will be out on Friday night when the Road Warriors and the Elasto Painters collide also at "The Big Dome".

This is actually Almazan's second consecutive bad news as he was taken off the Gilas pool for the FIBA World Cup Qualifiers February window on Monday night.
