Jahlil Okafor has been suspended for 2 games by the Philadelphia 76ers -- effective immediately -- in the wake of video showing the NBA star in multiple street fights in Boston. 

TMZ Sports first posted footage of Okafor fighting on Thanksgiving Eve last week ... but the team allowed him to play the following game. 

Now, after we posted a second video -- showing Okafor attacking another man -- the team has decided to take action.

The team issued a statement saying, "While we are disappointed with his recent actions, we have faith in him as a valued member of the Sixers."

"We will provide the necessary resources to support him on his journey and will do our part to help him succeed both on and off the court."
