Charlie Villanueva has been fined $25,000 for his flagrant foul two on Isaiah Thomas during the second quarter of Detroit Pistons' 103-97 win over the Sacramento Kings on Tuesday, the NBA announced on Wednesday.

"He's a dirty player," Thomas said after the game, according to the Sacramento Bee. "It is what it is. He got kicked out of the game, so it wasn't nothing big. A lot of guys do stuff like that knowing you can't really fight in this league, so it's all right."
