Denver Nuggets forward Jordan Hamilton was fined $25,000 by the NBA on Wednesday for cursing at a fan.
The incident occurred with 3:50 left in the fourth quarter of Tuesday's 112-100 loss to the Clippers in Los Angeles.
Hamilton was fouled while running on a fast break, and his momentum carried him into the crowd.
As he returned to the court, he issued a profanity to a Clippers fan that was caught by a television camera and microphone.
Hamilton is averaging 6.8 points this season.
