MILWAUKEE -- Milwaukee Bucks forward Drew Gooden was suspended without pay for the team's first home game Tuesday night for his flagrant foul in the season opener.

Gooden was ejected late in the third quarter Monday for clocking Gerald Henderson in the head with his arm as the Bobcats guard attempted to make a driving layup in Charlotte's 96-95 win.

"Once they rule that, it's going to be looked at very carefully in the league office," Bucks coach Scott Skiles said. "Those are tough calls, and the league makes them."

Gooden's suspension leaves the Bucks particularly short-handed for their home opener against the Minnesota Timberwolves. Luc Richard Mbah a Moute, Carlos Delfino and Tobias Harris will not play Tuesday night because of injuries.

Mbah a Moute has tendinitis in his right knee, Delfino has a sprained right wrist and Harris, a rookie, has been out with dehydration.

Gooden scored four points off the bench before his ejection.

The 10th-year veteran averaged 11.3 points and 6.8 rebounds for the Bucks last season.
