Heat's Dwyane Wade fined for making obscene gesture vs. Hornets
Thursday January 22nd, 2015

Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade was issued a $15,000 fine for making an obscene gesture during Wednesday's loss to the Charlotte Hornets, the NBA announced on Thursday.

The gesture reportedly occurred after the Heat missed three shots on the final possession of the third quarter. The sequence reportedly left Wade frustrated.

Wade scored 17 points, grabbed seven rebounds and dished out four assists in the loss, which dropped Miami to 18-24 on the season.

Over 32 games this season, Wade has averaged 21.8 points 5.5 assists and 4.0 rebounds in 32.5 minutes.

The Heat will host the Indiana Pacers (15-29) on Friday.
