Miles Bridges, former Charlotte Hornets forward, has been suspended 30 games without pay following a domestic violence incident involving the mother of his children, the NBA announced on Friday. The NBA has decided that 20 games out of 30 have already been served as Bridges went unsigned for the duration of the 2022-23 season following his arrest. Therefore, he will miss 10 games when he signs a new contract before becoming eligible to return.

Bridges was taken into custody on domestic violence charges on the eve of free agency this past summer after his girlfriend Mychelle Johnson shares graphic images on social media of injuries she says she sustained during a violent attack.

Johnson accused Bridges of giving her a severe concussion, fracturing her wrist, fracturing her nose, choking her until she went to sleep, and other injuries. The post also included pictures of Johnson’s face, hands, neck, back, arms, and legs and a market report that said Johnson was an adult victim of physical abuse by a male partner.
