MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin Love has been suspended two games for stomping on Rockets forward Luis Scola's face in their game on Saturday.

The NBA announced the suspension on Monday. The incident occurred when Sco-la fell to the court during the third quarter. As Love headed back to the other end, he stepped on Scola's face and upper body.

Love said after the game that the stomp was not intentional and he went to the Rockets' locker room to apologize to Scola.

The NBA also upgraded it to a flagrant-two foul on Love.

The suspension means the Timberwolves will be without their leading scorer and rebounder for a home game against Sacramento on Tuesday night and a game at Memphis on Wednesday night.
