Matt Barnes Suspended For One NBA Game After Police Issues

Last week on Basketball Wives L.A. while all the other ladies were hanging with Jackie in Seattle, Gloria Govan stayed behind to deal with the repercussions of her husband Matt Barnes‘ recent arrest. On the show, Gloria explained that a cop tried to arrest Matt for traffic violations and the situation escalated to the point where Matt was cited for resisting arrest.

The real-life repercussions of the situation have hit Matt today, as the NBA suspended him for one game. Matt now plays for the L.A. Clippers and will miss tonight’s game against the Memphis Grizzlies. Yesterday Matt tweeted about his punishment writing “My suspension handed down by the NBA 2day is a #JOKE, but best of luck 2 my team 2maro vs a tough Memphis team and ill be ready for Friday vs Lakers.
