MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Bucks forward Drew Gooden will miss Milwaukee's first home game for his flagrant foul in the season opener.

The NBA said Tuesday that Gooden had been suspended without pay for that night's game against the Minnesota Timberwolves. Gooden was ejected late in the third quarter Monday for clocking Gerald Henderson in the head with his arm as the Bobcats guard attempted to make a driving layup in Charlotte's 96-95 win.

Gooden scored four points off the bench before his ejection.

The 10th-year veteran averaged 11.3 points and 6.8 rebounds for the Bucks last season.
