NBA reportedly investigating incident involving Patrick Beverley, Thunder fan
The NBA is reportedly investigating an incident that took place between Houston Rockets guard Patrick Beverley and an Oklahoma City Thunder fan Friday night.
Multiple sources told ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne that the league is reviewing footage from television broadcasts and the arena itself to figure out what happened. Beverley will also be interviewed by the NBA.
Little is known about the alleged incident, but a Chesapeake Energy Arena spokesperson said there had been an incident immediately following the game. A few images emerged, but offered little in the way of conclusive evidence regarding what took place.

Beverley does occasionally get involved in things like this, albeit not with fans. The league has zero tolerance for player-fan conflicts, so if anything did happen, Beverley will likely be disciplined for it.
