Based on James hitting Stewart’s face, leaving him bloodied, he will likely face some form of punishment. Will it be a comment? That will be up to the NBA to decide. If anything, James will likely face an absolute minimum fine.

After being hit in the face, Stewart was furious, trying to reach James several times. He was stopped by his team members and eventually pushed into the Little Caesars Arena tunnel, where he eventually made a crazy dash down the hallway.

Stewart was evaluated for two technical fouls after he was hit in the face by LeBron and he was also sent off. Lakers guard Russell Westbrook has also been technically evaluated.

James had just made a comeback last Friday after missing action due to an abdominal strain. Now, it will remain to be seen if he will have to miss a game if the league decides to suspend him. All we can say is to stay in touch.
