NBA: Preseason-Dallas Mavericks at New Orleans Pelicans Ray Carlin-USA TODAY Sports

The NBA issued a statement on Friday that the former Villanova Wildcat and current New Orleans Pelican, Dante Cunningham, has been suspended one game.

Apparently, Cunningham was arrested over the Summer and plead guilty to “operating a motor vehicle in a negligent manner while exhibiting the effects of having consumed alcohol.”

He pled guilty for that violation.

Cunningham, who is averaging 5.6 points and 3.6 rebounds per game this season, will miss Friday’s game against the Phoenix Suns.
