    L.A. Lakers forward Metta World Peace aka Ron Artest, has been suspended seven games for elbowing Oklahoma City Thunder guard James Harden in the head during a game on Sunday.

    The Lakers only have one regular season game left so the suspension will carry into the playoffs.

    “The concussion suffered by James Harden demonstrates the danger posed by violent acts of this kind, particularly when they are directed at the head area,” NBA commissioner David Stern said in a statement. “We remain committed to taking necessary measures to protect the safety of NBA players, including the imposition of appropriate penalties for players with a history of on-court altercations.”
