The Wizards forward was fined $ 15,000 by the NBA, El atlético‘s Shams Charania informes.
En un oficial NBA statement, Kuzma was fined for making an “obscene gesture toward a fan.”
The incident occurred in the fourth quarter after Kuzma drained a three from the corner to put Washington ahead 97-88.
It isn’t known if the fan said that might have caused him to make the gesture, Bleacher Report writes. The Pistons immediately called a timeout after Kuzma’s basket. The officials didn’t blow the whistle for a technical foul.
Bleacher Report informes that this marks the second notable fine for a player due to an obscene gesture during a game, with Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James being docked $ 15,000 after making a three-pointer against the Indiana Pacers for doing a celebration often attributed to former NBA player Sam Cassell.
