Andrew Bynum gets five-game suspension and $25,000 fine
Bynum will forfeit $677,272 in salary. He apologized for the incident on Tuesday, saying it didn't reflect his upbringing or the Lakers' organization.
He also said he was relieved Barea wasn't seriously injured.
Bynum was ejected from the final game of the Lakers' season after delivering a forearm to Barea while the diminutive guard was in the air for a lay-up attempt.
