The NBA has announced a 30 game suspension for Charlotte Hornets forward Miles Bridges.

Miles Bridges missed the entire 2022-23 season, stemming from charges of domestic violence and child abuse. The Charlotte Hornets forward has now learned his fate from the NBA. NBA insider Shams Charania is reporting the league has suspended Bridges for 30 games. However, the league will consider 20 of those games already served. Bridges will miss the first ten games of the 2023-24 season. The news has evoked a lot of emotion from those on Twitter.

Last summer, Bridges was arrested for domestic violence. The incident became public knowledge when Bridges' ex-girlfriend posted photos online of the physical abuse she received at the hands of Bridges. Reportedly the incident took place in front of the former couple's child. Bridges received three years of probation while avoiding jail time in the situation. However, the league's recent suspension of Bridges isn't enough for a lot of people. Fans of the league took to Twitter on Friday to voice their displeasure with the ruling.

Miles Bridges Set To Return In 2023-24

Domestic violence is completely unacceptable and has no place in our world. The Hornets have yet to comment on the situation regarding Bridges and the NBA's decision. However, Bridges mentioned earlier this year that he expected to be back with the team before the end of this season. However, that obviously wasn't the case. Bridges attended a Hornets matchup with the Los Angeles Lakers as a fan earlier this season. Now it seems like the former Michigan State Spartans star will be rejoining his team. Or at least will be available for any team to acquire his services.

Bridges was set to be a big free agent target before the domestic violence incident. Now, it is unknown if the Hornets or any team will welcome him back to the league. However, we have seen athletes do heinous acts and be welcomed back to their sport with open arms. Where do you stand on the NBA's suspension of Miles Bridges? Should Bridges ever play in the NBA again? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section. For the latest news regarding the NBA, keep it right here with HNHH.
