Walsh suspended Marbury for the game against Golden State because the Knicks said Marbury refused to play Wednesday night in a loss at Detroit. The Knicks also docked his pay from that night, with the penalties costing Marbury nearly $400,000.

Walsh said he would probably talk to Marbury and his representation from the players' association Monday to address a stalemate that turned ugly this week. Walsh has said he's opposed to buyouts and agreed that it's difficult to trade Marbury because of his salary of approximately $21 million, but it seems obvious the Knicks have to do something soon.

"I think everybody came into it with good intentions and it hasn't worked out, so we've got to acknowledge that," Walsh said.

Walsh didn't criticize Marbury directly, but was bothered that the former All-Star wouldn't play when the Knicks were short-handed after trades and injuries.

"I'm definitely disappointed in a refusal to play because I think that's central to a player's contract," Walsh said. "There's nothing in there that says, 'You will provide your services.' It doesn't say you will play if you have the playing time you want or you like the coach or don't like the coach.' It doesn't say anything about that."
