The NBA has suspended Detroit Pistons PF/C Greg Monroe for driving while being visibly impaired. Monroe pleaded guilty to driving visibly impaired and will be receiving no pay at all during this time. Monroe signed the qualifying offer with the Pistons this year, which means he will become a free agent next Summer.

We also have an update on PJ Tucker’s suspension:
The NBA suspended Greg Monroe 2 games, like past DUI-type penalties. P.J. Tucker likely got a 3-game penalty due to his charge's DUI level.
