This means that LeBron James is missing for the Los Angeles Lakers in the game against the New York Knicks in Madison Square Garden. Stewart was banned from the NBA for two games and is not allowed to play against the Miami Heat or the Milwaukee Bucks for the Detroit Pistons. The NBA announced the decisions on Monday.
James hit Stewart in the face on Sunday night and was thrown off the field because of it. Stewart was bleeding and so enraged that many people had to hold him back several times.
