Rest of season
On another front... Based on what Stern did last year and his supposed goals (no player ever to enter the stands) the suspension should've been longer BUT I'd have no problem with part of that being a probationary period or simply a "suspended sentence".
IOW- You give him 25 games (or whatever) then acknowledge the mitigating circumstances and make 20 of those 'probationary' so he only really misses the 5 games (and of course plays the next 20 'probationary' games under elevated scrutiny). A 'normal' suspendable offense in those 'probationary games' could lead to a much harsher suspension period (revoking of probation).
But what do I know? ....
O'Brien has been fired! Yay! What took so long?
