ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Dwight Howard has been suspended for Game 6 of the Orlando Magic's playoff series against the Philadelphia 76ers.

The NBA announced Wednesday that Howard will be suspended for his elbow on Sixers center Samuel Dalembert in Game 5 on Tuesday night. The two got tangled up going for a rebound in the first quarter.

Replays showed Howard's elbow hit Dalembert above the shoulders. Howard drew a technical foul for the hit.

Orlando will also be without starting guard Courtney Lee, who suffered a fractured sinus after taking an inadvertent elbow to the head from Howard later in the quarter. Lee's status for the remainder of the playoffs is uncertain.

The Magic lead the Sixers 3-2 in the best-of-seven series. Game 6 is Thursday.
