Rod Beard: #Pistons Dwane Casey on Isaiah Stewart incident: “He shouldn’t be facing anything. Not getting off the court in time (is a small thing)…I don’t see any ramifications from the league on that.”

Detroit Pistons big man Isaiah Stewart required five stitches after the game, according to the team. – 10:00 PMOmari Sanfoka II @omarisankofa
Pistons have three games until they play the Lakers again. Isaiah Stewart was justifiably angry, but the league may come down hard on him losing control.
The question is how big the disparity between his punishment and LeBron’s will be. That elbow LeBron threw was vicious – 9:50 PMRod Beard @detnewsRodBeard

Referee Scott Foster: “After Isaiah Stewart left the court, Cory Joseph was anticipating he may come around the back of house and enter the Laker bench from the opposite side. So, he was going to intercept him. I actually told Cory that would be good.” – 9:35 PMMarc J. Spears @MarcJSpears

Anthony Davis on the LeBron James and Isaiah Stewart altercation: “Everyone in the league knows LeBron isn’t a dirty guy. As soon as he did it, he looked back and told him, ‘My bad. I didn’t try to do it.’ I don’t know what he tried to do. Nobody on our team, 1-15, was having it” pic.twitter.com/KIL1jp04sm – 9:09 PM

#Pistons Dwane Casey said he told Isaiah Stewart, “Don’t let this define who you are.” – 9:09 PM

James Edwards III @JLEdwardsIII
Casey said Isaiah Stewart was upset for a reason. Said LeBron James isn’t a dirty player.
Casey doesn’t think he should face any trouble. “He was upset.” Stewart got stitches after. Casey talked to Isaiah after, told him: “This doesn’t define who you are.” – 9:09 PMRod Beard @detnewsRodBeard

Some NBA cats go on fake, “Hold me back! Hold me back!” acts when the smoke hits the air. Isaiah Stewart was trucking cats like Billy Sims or Earl Campbell to get to LeBron. pic.twitter.com/kAGNBRMkxe – 8:50 PM

Lakers get back to .500 at 9-9 with a come-from-behind win in Detroit, 121-116, in a game LeBron was ejected for striking Isaiah Stewart in the face. AD 30p 10r 6a 5b 4s; Westbrook 26p 10a 9r 2s; Melo 18p on 5-of-8 from 3; Dwight 13p on 5-of-6 5r. – 8:47 PM

All that talk about Cade Cunningham being a team player is true. No one fought harder to keep Isaiah Stewart from getting to LeBron than Cade. – 8:35 PM

Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Isaiah Stewart lost his mind, but comparing what happened there to the Malice in the Palace tells me a lot of people need to go watch that doc. That was complete, uncontrolled insanity. Tonight wasn’t anywhere close to what happened during that Pistons-Pacers game. – 8:25 PM

Jeff Goodman @GoodmanHoops
I’ll say this about Isaiah Stewart. In my 20-plus years of doing this, one of the nicest guys I have ever spoken to. Also one of the toughest. – 8:20 PM

Michael Scotto @MikeAScotto
Isaiah Stewart broke more tackles trying to go after LeBron James than every NFL running back combined on Sunday 👀 pic.twitter.com/2eHm1yjddP – 8:20 PM

Arash Markazi @ArashMarkazi
What a surreal scene. Isaiah Stewart not only wanted to take on LeBron James and everyone on the Lakers but he calmly did the “it’s over, I’m done” walk off multiple times before sprinting back to get his revenge. The back door attempt at the end is crazy. pic.twitter.com/5W0wmhtOUZ – 8:09 PM

Reminder that #Pistons are at #Lakers next Sunday in Los Angeles. Zero chance that #Pistons Isaiah Stewart plays in that game. – 8:05 PM

#Pistons Isaiah Stewart seemed to be fine initially, but things seemed to escalate after he realized how bloody he was.
He wasn’t wrong, but the optics are going to be what the NBA sees more than the circumstances. – 8:03 PM

Serena Winters @SerenaWinters
What was it Rudy Gobert said last week amid the Turner altercation?
‘Guys that aren’t about that life need to stop acting like they are…’
Isaiah Stewart about that life, ain’t nobody messing with that guy from here on out.
Damnnnnnnnnn – 8:02 PM

Official prediction: Isaiah Stewart will get a game. That’ll be it. – 8:01 PM

Don’t be surprised if #Pistons Isaiah Stewart is suspended multiple games — and maybe more games than LeBron James. – 7:58 PM

Miami gonna be trying to call up the Pistons about Isaiah Stewart by the deadline now – 7:55 PM

Adam Spolane @AdamSpolane
Lakers TV is hilarious right now. “LeBron James drew blood on Isaiah Stewart” “LeBron went over to apologize and Stewart was having none of it”. This is cable news propaganda – 7:53 PM

One game to Bron and fine Isaiah Stewart.
Whatchu expect bruh to do when he get punched in the face and bleeding? – 7:53 PM

Isaiah Stewart did box as a kid, and when I asked if he hurt other kids, he said “I don’t want to talk about it.”

People getting on Isaiah Stewart for going a bit crazy but I feel like you should be allowed to do almost anything you want with no judgment when you’re bleeding from your eye area from an elbow at a basketball game – 7:51 PM

Isaiah Stewart is 100% on the list of players who will bleep you up – 7:49 PM

Isaiah Stewart trying (and succeeding? we’ll see) to be an even bigger cult hero. – 7:48 PM

Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Gotta imagine a suspension is coming for Isaiah Stewart. You lose it like that and you’re gonna miss a game or two.
The real question is if LeBron James also gets a suspension or not. Flagrant 2’s pretty regularly do also come with a one-game suspension. We’ll see tomorrow! – 7:48 PM

Frank Isola @TheFrankIsola
Isaiah Stewart, who suffered a cut to his face, is likely to get multiple game suspension. If LeBron gets a game that means he’s out vs the Knicks on Tuesday. – 7:38 PM

Vivek Jacob @vivekmjacob
LeBron James has been ejected for a flagrant 2, two tech ejection for Isaiah Stewart, tech on Russell Westbrook pic.twitter.com/ImP0tXA7wS – 7:37 PM

Kyle Goon @kylegoon
Isaiah Stewart is also ejected. Looks like Russ got a tech. Could not hear Scott Foster in the arena because of the uproar from the fans as soon as LeBron was ejected, followed by the PA instructing the audience NOT to throw anything on the floor. – 7:36 PM

James Edwards III @JLEdwardsIII
Also, I’m not sure if Isaiah Stewart got tossed. I imagine so, but I couldn’t hear it after the elation of LeBron getting tossed. – 7:36 PM

Ky Carlin @Ky_Carlin
Yea, understandable to see LeBron get ejected. He basically close punched Isaiah Stewart in the eye and that caused everything. – 7:35 PM

Kamenetzky Brothers @KamBrothers
A lot of NBA oncourt skirmishes are fake fights. Isaiah Stewart legitimately wanted to fight. AK – 7:35 PM

Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
So both LeBron James and Isaiah Stewart end up ejected after all that. – 7:34 PM

Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Isaiah Stewart was not doing the “Hold me back!” game there. He wanted a real piece of whoever he could get. – 7:34 PM

LeBron James ejected with a flagrant 2 foul on Isaiah Stewart. That started the altercation – 7:34 PM

James Edwards III @JLEdwardsIII
Just saw the replay on the jumbotron. LeBron basically closed-fist punched Isaiah Stewart during a free throw. That’s why Isaiah wanted to get him.
LeBron will get ejected. That was intentional. – 7:32 PM

Rod Beard @detnewsRodBeard
On the replay, it looks like LeBron James got Isaiah Stewart with an elbow or a punch.
That’s where the blood came from apparently. – 7:32 PM

ahhh lebron elbowed isaiah stewart in the face on the free throw line – 7:31 PM

Wild scene here in Detroit where Isaiah Stewart, bleeding from his face from contact from LeBron James, repeatedly had to be separated from James and other Lakers players. pic.twitter.com/OAP49jWGru – 7:30 PM

Rod Beard @detnewsRodBeard
There’s likely going to be a significant delay to get things sorted out here. #Pistons Isaiah Stewart was profusely bleeding from his eye, and they’ll have to spray down the court for the blood. – 7:30 PM

Ky Carlin @Ky_Carlin
Isaiah Stewart needs to relax. Understandably upset over the nasty cut on his eye, but this is a different kind of rage. – 7:29 PM

Bill Oram @billoram
Absolute melee in Detroit. Isaiah Stewart is trying to take the entire Lakers team on. He is bleeding from the face. Because of the history, PA announcer repeatedly stressing that fans do not come onto the floor. – 7:29 PM

Omari Sanfoka II @omarisankofa
Isaiah Stewart is ready to fight, wow. He’s gushing blood from near his right eye – 7:29 PM

James Edwards III @JLEdwardsIII
Isaiah Stewart faked like he was going to go to the bench and went sprinting at the Lakers. I’m not sure what happened but he’s got five or six guys holding him back.
These two teams play a week from today in LA. – 7:28 PM

Vivek Jacob @vivekmjacob
Omg Isaiah Stewart has absolutely lost it – 7:28 PM

Rod Beard @detnewsRodBeard
#Pistons Isaiah Stewart needs to get some control He’s in a different kind of rage. – 7:28 PM

James Edwards III @JLEdwardsIII
Something happened where Isaiah Stewart ended up on ground. He is going after LeBron and Russ. He has to be held back by several players and coaches.
There’s blood coming from his eye. – 7:27 PM

Kyle Goon @kylegoon
Isaiah Stewart got up and went for LeBron. He’s made multiple efforts to go at him. Don’t know what got him that mad. – 7:27 PM
