Ed Szczepanski-US PRESSWIRE

The NBA has officially handed down its punishment for Thomas Robinson's intentional elbow on Jonas Jerebko in Wednesday's game. It's a two-game suspension, meaning he will be out this Friday against the Spurs and Sunday against the Lakers.

Here's the NBA's official release, although it doesn't say anything new:

NEW YORK, November 8, 2012 - The Sacramento Kings' Thomas Robinson has been suspended two games without pay for throwing an elbow to the neck of Jonas Jerebko of the Detroit Pistons, it was announced today by Stu Jackson, NBA Executive Vice President Basketball Operations.

The incident, for which Robinson was assessed a Flagrant Foul 2 and ejected, occurred with 10:00 remaining in the fourth quarter of Sacramento's 105-103 win over Detroit on November 7 at Sleep Train Arena.

Robinson will serve his suspension when the Kings host the San Antonio Spurs on November 9 and when the Kings play the Los Angeles Lakers at Staples Center on November 11.
