LeBron has been banned for one game, which will be the first ban of his 19-year career.
He will miss Lakers’ next game in New York against the Knicks on Tuesday.
Stewart has been banned for two games because he “escalated an on-court altercation by repeatedly and aggressively pursuing” James.
Stewart will miss the Pistons’ home game against the Heat and also Wednesday’s match against the Bucks.
