Isaiah Stewart reportedly struck Drew Eubanks in the facial area within the passageway of the Phoenix Suns’ arena before Wednesday’s game.

Before Eubanks could land a punch, both Stewart and Eubanks had a confrontational exchange, standing chest-to-chest.

Law enforcement officials intervened to separate the two, and Stewart exited the arena accompanied by members of the Pistons’ staff.

The incident follows a previous game on November 5th in Detroit, where Stewart and Eubanks displayed aggressive behavior, engaging in verbal exchanges throughout the match.

After the altercation, Eubanks continued his warm-up routine, taking place approximately two hours before the start of the game.
