ATLANTA (AP) -- Milwaukee Bucks guard Charlie Bell won't play in Game 7 of the NBA playoffs against the Atlanta Hawks for disciplinary reasons.
Coach Scott Skiles isn't discussing the reasons for the punishment, saying he doesn't want that to be the focus heading into the decisive game of the series.
Bell has barely played against the Hawks, anyway -- a total of eight minutes in three games. He'll be replaced on the 12-man roster by Andrew Bogut, but that is merely a symbolic move. Bogut is out of the year after a gruesome fall to the court with less than two weeks left in the regular season.
