Developing: Isaiah Stewart allegedly punches Suns’ Drew Eubanks before game

Detroit Bad Boys

Detroit Pistons’ injured center Isaiah Stewart and Phoenix Suns big man Drew Eubanks were involved in an altercation hours prior to Wednesday’s game between the two teams, with Stewart reportedly punching Eubanks.

The still-developing news was broken on X by The Athletic’s Shams Charania. Charania reported that both players were “chest-to-chest” before Stewart punched Eubanks, and that police are now involved.

The altercation occurred in the back tunnels of Footprint Center where the Suns and Pistons were scheduled to tip off at 9 p.m. ET. Stewart was already listed as out with an ankle injury. It is unclear if Eubanks will suit up for the game.

The NBA is expected to review footage of the incident, Charania writes.

Stewart has always seemed like a f— around and find out type of player. He’s never been shy about getting into it with opposing players, and he’s never backed down from anyone. Still, “find out” also includes the kind of punishment that comes when you go too far.

We know very little about what happened, and there is a small chance that this is an inaccurate or one-sided account of what happened. However, if we take the information at face value, it seems the biggest question at this point is how many games Stewart, and maybe Eubanks, will be suspended.

We will have more as news develops.
