Isaiah Thomas Suspended Two Games For Entering Stands

Dec 22, 2019 10:26 PM

Isaiah Thomas received a 2 game suspension for entering the stands during the Washington Wizards' 125-108 loss at the Philadelphia 76ers.

Thomas confronted two fans over obscenities and gestures late in the 4th quarter.

The two fans were suspended from all Wells Fargo Center events for 12 months.

The NBA noted that the automatic suspension is intended to prevent altercations between players and fans, and thus enforced even when a situation does not escalate.
