The ban came two days after World Peace, formerly known as Ron Artest, drove his left elbow into the side of Harden’s head during a game at Staples Center arena.

World Peace once served one of the longest suspensions in league history – a 86-game ban for his role in a fight between Indiana players and Detroit Piston fans in November 2004.

The then Pacers player charged into the stands to attack a fan after someone threw an object at him, while other Pacer players brawled with Piston fans on the court.

Harden suffered a concussion in Sunday’s incident and has yet to be cleared to play.
