NEW YORK (AP) — Miami guard Dwyane Wade has been fined $15,000 by the NBA for making an obscene gesture during the Heat's 78-76 loss to the Charlotte Hornets on Wednesday night.
Rod Thorn, the NBA's president of basketball operations, announced the fine Thursday night.
Wade stuck out his middle finger at some fans at the end of the third quarter in the game at Charlotte's Time Warner Cable Arena.
