Bassy Telfair to be suspended for at least two games

It's due to a case stemming from last year while he was still with Boston, but his past just doesn't seem to come to rest. Ironically, this would be his first suspension since all previous charges were dismissed. "Telfair was sentenced last month to three years' probation for misdemeanor possession of a loaded .45-caliber handgun, speeding and driving without a license in Westchester in April 2007. He was a member of the Celtics at the time of his arrest. Since his case has been resolved, his suspension by the NBA is automatic. The league needs only to determine how many games he'll serve, with sources indicating it will be for a minimum of two." The Blazers play the Timberwolves in their games 6 and 8, so unless Stern wants to prove something in this case (he was mighty mad at the time of the incident) Telfair will be back in action against us. Update: He has been suspended by the NBA for three games.
