Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook won't be disciplined for shoving a fan who had stepped onto the court after his team lost to the Denver Nuggets on Thursday, reports ESPN. 

The fan has also reportedly been banned from games. 

Moments after Oklahoma City lost 127–124 on a buzzer-beating three-pointer by Nuggets Gary Harris in Denver, Westbrook was headed off the court when a fan stepped in front of him.

Video showed that Westbrook used his left hand to push the fan in the shoulder.

The NBA investigated the incident.

"The fans are obviously there to enjoy the game, but they can't come onto the floor. That's totally unacceptable," Westbrook said, who added he felt he was justified in shoving the fan. "They'll look at it and figure out what's the best thing to do. To me that's just totally unacceptable. "I don't want to keep talking about it. I already made my comment. That's it," he said.

Westbrook had 20 points, 21 assists and nine rebounds in the game for Oklahoma City.
