Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James and Detroit Pistons center Isaiah Stewart were both slapped with suspensions for their incident during their 2021-2022 NBA Season match on Sunday at Little Caesars Arena in Detroit, Michigan.

James has been suspended for one game for his elbow on Stewart, who suffered a cut above his right eye.

Stewart, on the other hand, will be out for two matches after he repeatedly tried to chase James despite being pacified by teammates and coaches.

James will be missing the Lakers’ match against New York Knicks on Tuesday night (Wednesday in the Philippines) at Madison Square Arena in New York City.

Stewart will be out for the Pistons on their home game against Miami Heat on the same day and against defending champions Milwaukee Bucks the next day at Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
