NBA fines Isaiah Thomas $20,000 for hitting Andrew Wiggins in the throat


Isaiah Thomas stinks at karate, but he’s good at having $20,000 less than he did before he tried karate. 

That’s business speak to say that the NBA fined the Cavaliers point guard $20,000 for his upper-cut chop on Andrew Wiggins in Tuesday’s game against the Timberwolves. Thomas was given a Flagrant 2 foul and ejected from the game for the act. 

Following the game, Thomas insisted that he was going for a steal and did not intend to hit Wiggins in the throat. He also apologized to Wiggins for the whole ordeal.
