Detroit Pistons assistant coach Tim Hardaway Sr. has been suspended for three games after pleading no contest last month to a drunken driving charge. 

The NBA announced the suspension Friday. 

The Detroit Free Press reported last month that Hardaway was sentenced to 18 months of probation and 10 days of community service following his plea.

Hardaway, a five-time All-Star as a player, was hired by the Pistons as an assistant in 2014, shortly after Stan Van Gundy took over as coach and team president.

Davis could be out two weeks

The New Orleans Pelicans say Anthony Davis is expected to return to basketball activities within 10 to 14 days after spraining his right ankle during an exhibition game against Houston in China on Wednesday. 

The update comes after the Pelicans resumed practice at their New Orleans-area headquarters on Friday.

The prognosis for Davis raises the prospects that he'll either return in time for New Orleans' regular-season opener on Oct. 26 against visiting Denver, or shortly afterward.

Davis, a three-time All-Star, has averaged 20.8 points, 9.7 rebounds and 2.4 blocks during his first four NBA seasons.
