NEW YORK, March 5, 2011 -- The Orlando Magic's Dwight Howard has received a one-game suspension without pay for receiving his 16th technical foul of the 2010-11 season, it was announced today by Stu Jackson, NBA Executive Vice President, Basketball Operations.

Under NBA rules, a player or coach is automatically suspended without pay for one game once he receives his 16th technical foul during a regular season. For every two additional technical fouls received during that regular season, the player or coach will be automatically suspended for an additional game.

Howard received his most recent technical foul with 1:41 remaining in the second quarter of Orlando's 89-81 loss to the Chicago Bulls on Friday, March 4, at Amway Center. Howard will serve his suspension Monday, March 7 when the Magic face the Portland Trail Blazers at Amway Center.
