Isaiah Stewart is being disciplined by the NBA over his altercation with Drew Eubanks last week.

The league announced on Thursday that they have suspended Stewart three games over the incident.

In their press release announcing the punishment, the league said Stewart initiated a physical altercation with Eubanks. They also said that Stewart had pushed and punched Eubanks.

Stewart, who had been out with an ankle injury, is expected to begin serving the suspension on Thursday night.

Stewart was arrested by Phoenix police for assaulting Eubanks prior to last Thursday’s game between the Detroit Pistons and Suns. The 22-year-old was cited and released. He is facing a court appearance on Friday over his misdemeanor charge.

A first-round pick in 2020, Stewart is averaging 11.0 points and 6.8 rebounds per game this season.
