The league statement reports that, by the elbow, James only missed one Lakers game Tuesday’s against the Knicks, while, due to his unsportsmanlike attitude, Stewart will have to pay with two absences with the Pistons.

Such punishment casts doubt on the protection that the league has with LeBron, who was the one singled out when in the third quarter, he elbowed while defending the paint after a free throw that hit the young Pistons player in the eyebrow.

The act provoked the ire of Stewart, who tried to confront James on several occasions while being detained by team and security personnel to prevent the situation from escalating. Once the chaos was over, the referees decided to give James a flagrant type 2 foul and was sent off, while Stewart received two technical fouls and he was expelled.
