Charlotte Hornets center Dwight Howard has been fined $35,000 for making an obscene gesture toward a fan.
The incident occurred during the second quarter of the Hornets’ 100-99 road loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers Friday night.
Howard, in his first season with the Hornets after spending last year with the Atlanta Hawks, is averaging 15.5 points and 12.9 rebounds per game while shooting 59.0 percent from the field.
The eight-time All-Star is still a putrid free throw shooter, hitting 45.4 percent from the charity stripe.
Charlotte enters today with a record of 8-10, 11th place in the Eastern Conference.
Howard, 31, was fined $25,000 in early November for a similar incident in Minnesota.
