No, you don't get suspended unless you throw an elbow ABOVE the shoulders...Kobe didn't do that. The NBA did review that play and they slapped Kobe with a Flagrant 1 and a fine...but it wouldn't make any sense for them to suspend him because he didn't elbow him above the shoulders...it was right on the chest.
