LeBron James ejected after a dirty elbow that left Isaiah Stewart bloody

Isaiah-Stewart-LeBron-James

It's never good when a bloody player is chasing someone on the floor. But it's particularly stressful when it's happening on the Pistons' home court. The team with the Malice in the Palace in their DNA doesn't want a remake of the situation, and that's exactly what LeBron's elbow to Isaiah Stewart's face looked like the start of.

While fighting for position to potentially grab a rebound following a free throw, LeBron threw a dirty elbow that connected with Stewart's eye. After gathering himself for a few seconds, Stewart got up and started walking to James. As the blood began running down his face, Stewart got angrier and angrier. On several occasions, he had to be stopped storming towards Lakers players, primarily LeBron James.

James was ejected from the game, and Stewart was escorted to the locker room to get medical attention.

LeBron will undoubtedly get a suspension after an apparent intentional blow to the head of Isaiah Stewart. Given how the Lakers have looked without LeBron and the fact they are currently losing the Pistons in the fourth quarter, and it looks like they will lose this game as well, every game without James is a blow for the Lakers.

Luckily, this is Adam Silver's NBA, so James probably won't miss a lot of time.
