Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James has been suspended one game for "recklessly hitting" Detroit Pistons center Isaiah Stewart in the face during their altercation in Sunday's game, the NBA announced on Monday.

Stewart has been suspended two games for "escalating an on-court altercation by repeatedly and aggressively pursuing" James, who will serve his suspension on Tuesday when the Lakers visit the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden.

Stewart will miss the Pistons' home game against Miami on Tuesday and their game Wednesday at Milwaukee. James will forfeit about $284,000 in salary, while Stewart will lose about $45,000.

The Lakers and Pistons meet again Sunday in Los Angeles, and James and Stewart will both be eligible to play.
