Beverley stands by his shove, claiming that Ayton was taunting his teammate Austin Reaves, who was already down on the ground after taking a shot to the face from Devin Booker. Bookers shot to Reaves was ultimately ruled as a flagrant foul. Reaves later came to Beverley's defense after he acted out on the court.
After review, the NBA has now announced a three-game suspension on Beverley. Beverley will be out until November 30, when the Lakers host the Portland Trail Blazers. Currently, Beverley is shooing just 26.6% overall and is 23.8% from the beyond-the-arc this season. He is a much-needed defensive leader on the court for the Lakers.
Take a look at the NBA's full statement on Beverley's suspension below.
