In the aftermath of a domestic violence incident involving the mother of his children, the NBA has suspended Miles Bridges without pay for 30 games.

The NBA's decision comes after Bridges was arrested and charged with multiple offenses in Los Angeles on June 27, 2022.

On November 3, 2022, Bridges entered a plea of no contest to a felony domestic violence charge, resulting in the dismissal of the remaining charges.

The NBA conducted an investigation into the matter, reviewing available evidence and consulting with domestic violence experts to determine an appropriate course of action.

The 30-game suspension takes into account all relevant factors, including Bridges' conduct and the outcome of the criminal case against him.

Bridges did not sign an NBA contract for the 2022-23 season following his arrest and plea, meaning he missed all 82 games.

The NBA has deemed 20 games of the suspension to have already been served due to his absence from the league.

However, if Bridges signs an NBA contract in the future, he will be required to sit out the first 10 games for which he is otherwise eligible to play.

The NBA takes incidents of domestic violence very seriously and has a comprehensive policy in place to address such matters.

The league also works closely with domestic violence organizations to provide support and resources to those impacted by these incidents.

The suspension of Bridges is a reminder of the NBA's commitment to promoting a safe and respectful workplace for all employees, both on and off the court.
