Los Angeles Lakers guard Ronnie Price will serve a one-game NBA suspension Friday for hitting New Orleans Pelicans guard Austin Rivers on the side of the head with his right forearm as Rivers elevated for a layup.

Price, who was assessed a Flagrant Foul 2 and ejected from the 109-102 loss with 9 minutes, 11 seconds remaining, will sit out Friday night against the San Antonio Spurs.
