Wizards’ Bradley Beal fined $15,000 for grabbing Evan Fournier by throat


It all started Friday night because Washington’s Kelly Oubre went up for the dunk and Orlando’s Bismack Biyombo blocked it (and got called for the blocking foul). As they separated Oubre gave Biyombo a push, Biyombo pushed back, and then a lot of guys came together to defend their teammates.

In that scrum, Washington’s Bradley Beal grabbed Orlando’s Evan Fournier by the throat. It was more of a push-off/Heisman move, no punches were thrown. Doesn’t matter, that’s going to cost Beal $15,000, the league announced on Sunday.

Beal and Fournier each picked up technicals, which is an automatic $2,000 fine also.
