Louzada’s suspension, announced by NBA spokesman Mark Broussard, began on Friday when the Pelicans hosted the Los Angeles Clippers. The 6-foot-5 Louzada joined the Pelicans last season. He has played in just two games this season and has not scored. Louzada is from Brazil and initially joined the NBA in 2019 when he was a second-round draft pick of the Atlanta Hawks.
