    Sydney Kings star import Josh Childress will face three charges on Tuesday and the potential sanction of a suspension, in one of the highest profile NBL tribunal hearings in the competition's history.

    American Childress, widely regarded as the best credentialled NBA player to appear in the NBL after 391 matches in the world's best club league, was ejected from last Friday's clash with the Wildcats in Perth, after flattening opposing forward Jesse Wagstaff.

    Childress 31, has been charged with striking with an elbow, unduly rough play and bringing the game into disrepute.

    He will appear before an independent tribunal in Sydney from 5.30pm (7.30pm NZT) on Tuesday.

    The most recent major tribunal hearing involving a striking charge occurred in the 2013-14 finals, when then Adelaide guard Gary Ervin was suspended for the deciding game of the semi-final series against Melbourne.
