Beverly has now been suspended for three games, the NBA confirmed on Thursday.

Basketball Commutations: “Los Angeles Lakers guard Patrick Beverly has been punished for three games without pay after shoving Phoenix Suns center Deandre Ayton from behind and knocking him to the ground, according to Joe Dumars, Executive Vice President and Head of Basketball Operations. Beverley’s history of unsportsmanlike behavior was a factor in her punishment.”
