The NBA on Sunday suspended Los Angeles Lakers forward Brandon Ingram four games, Lakers guard Rajon Rondo three games and Houston Rockets guard Chris Paul two games without pay for their roles in an on-court altercation that resulted in punches thrown in Saturday’s game, a person with knowledge of the suspensions told USA TODAY Sports.
The person requested anonymity because he was not authorized to speak until the announcement was made official by the league.
The suspensions begin immediately, and Paul will miss Sunday’s game against the Los Angeles Clippers. The Lakers play San Antonio on Monday.
In its announcement of the suspensions, Ingram was suspended for “aggressively returning to and escalating the altercation and throwing a punch in the direction of Paul, confronting a game official in a hostile manner, and instigating the overall incident by shoving Rockets guard James Harden.”
