LeBron James and Isaiah Stewart have both been distributed their suspensions for their functions in the near Lakers-Pistons melee on Sunday night.
Things nearly got exceptionally awful at Little Caesars Arena on Sunday night with the Los Angeles Lakers visiting the Detroit Pistons. A fracas started after LeBron James “accidentally” hit Pistons big guy Isaiah Stewart in the eye with an elbow/backhand.
That sent out Stewart into a furious state in which he confronted James and, after being separated, then attempting to dodge colleagues, opposing gamers, and security to get and attempt to LeBron once again, an attempt that was not successful.
Naturally, the big question was what the charges would be for each player included after both were ejected from Sunday nights video game. On Monday, we got that answer.
LeBron James suspended for one game, out vs. Knicks on Tuesday.
The NBA revealed on Monday that LeBron James would be suspended for one game, putting him out of the lineup on Tuesday night against the Knicks in Madison Square Garden. Stewart, for his part, was suspended for two games.

Shams Charania of The Athletic provided the NBAs reasoning for the suspensions that were given out.

Offered the undesirable memories of the Malice in the Palace that instantly came to mind for a lot of NBA fans seeing the Lakers-Pistons nearly get into a full-blown brawl resulting from the preliminary LeBron-Stewart occurrence, its not shocking that either gamer was suspended for this.
James will return to the Lakers on Wednesday as the team visits the Pacers. Stewarts suspension will be up for him to play versus the Clippers on the roadway on Friday night.

NBA: Stewarts suspension was for “escalating an on-court altercation by repeatedly and strongly pursuing (James) in an unsportsmanlike way.”.
James serves suspension Tuesday vs. Knicks for “recklessly striking Stewart in the face and initiating an on-court run-in.” https://t.co/4H08dXOZIY.
