Cleveland Cavaliers centre Tristan Thompson has been fined $15k (£11,700) for swearing at fans after Monday’s victory over the Brooklyn Nets.

The NBA announced on Thursday it would be fining the player for the middle-finger gesture made towards hecklers at the end of the Cavs’ 99-97 victory at the Barclays Center.
