The Phoenix Suns announced Thursday that they have suspended forward Markieff Morris for two games after he tossed a towel at Coach Jeff Hornacek.

Suns officials said Morris exhibited conduct that was detrimental to the team. He will not be allowed to play in the Dec. 26 game versus Philadelphia 76ers or in the Dec. 28 game against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

A temperamental Morris threw a towel at Hornacek during Wednesday night’s game against the Denver Nuggets in Phoenix. The Nuggets beat the Suns 104-96.

Morris took to Twitter to offer an apology for the incident.
