Detroit Pistons point guard Brandon Knight and World Peace tussled under the hoop while going for a rebound late in the second quarter of Sunday's game before World Peace hit his opponent in frustration.
The visiting Lakers went on to win 98-97.
World Peace will miss the Lakers' road game against the Brooklyn Nets later on Tuesday, the NBA said in a statement.
His suspension leaves the Lakers without two starters against the Nets as seven-times All-Star center Dwight Howard will miss his third consecutive game with a shoulder injury.
