    NEW YORK — Toronto Raptors guards DeAndre' Bembry and Fred VanVleet and Los Angeles Lakers guard Talen Horton-Tucker were suspended one game without pay Thursday (Friday, Manila time) for leaving their benches during a fight.

    The suspensions, announced by NBA executive vice president for basketball operations Kiki VanDeWeghe, stemmed from the first quarter of Tuesday night's game, a 110-101 victory by the Lakers.

    Bembry will serve his suspension in Toronto's game against the Chicago Bulls on Thursday night in Tampa, Florida. Horton-Tucker will miss the Lakers' game at Miami on Thursday night.

    VanVleet has missed the past two games with an injury. He will serve his suspension when physically able to play.

    Also, Toronto's OG Anunoby and Montrezl Harrell of Los Angeles were fined for their roles, leading to their ejections.
