Hornets’ Miles Bridges takes the court after serving suspension

CHARLOTTE — Charlotte Hornets forward Miles Bridges took to the court on Friday for the first time this season after serving a 30-game suspension.

Bridges was suspended by the NBA after he was arrested on domestic violence charges last year. He was initially arrested in June 2022 and later charged with three felonies for allegedly assaulting his then-girlfriend in front of their children. Bridges pleaded no contest to a lesser charge and was sentenced to three years of probation.

The Hornets take on the Milwaukee Bucks inside the Spectrum Center at 7 p.m. Bridges returned to practice this week.

Hornets fans have mixed reactions to Bridges’ return.

“I feel like, as a grown man, he could have been responsible,” one fan said. “I feel like everybody should be forgiven, so just let him play.”

The team said this week that they are “comfortable” with Bridges’ return.

“I don’t know the situation personally obviously domestic violence is should not be going on, I don’t know what happened inside that man’s home, but I do know that when it comes down to it the man above is the final judge,” another fan said.
