Pelicans forward Anthony Davis has been $15,000 by the NBA for directing an obscene gesture at a fan.
The fine was announced late Thursday afternoon by the NBA.
Davis gave a fan the middle finger as he was exiting the court after a 115-109 Pelicans loss to the Charlotte Hornets.
Davis has missed the last four games with what the teams calls “back spasms”. Davis requested a trade before the All Star break, and the Pelicans are expected to accommodate him in the off-season.
