Sacramento Kings guard Darren Collison has been suspended eight games without pay by the NBA because of a domestic violence incident involving his wife.
Collison pleaded guilty Sept. 2 to a misdemeanor domestic battery charge resulting from the May 30 incident.
The NBA said Sunday it conducted its own investigation and consulted a panel of experts in the field of domestic violence before determining its penalty.
Collison will lose about $380,000 of his $5.2 million salary this season. He will be eligible to return against Phoenix on Oct. 26.
