Dwight Howard fined $35,000 for flagrant foul but will NOT be suspended

Chris Humphreys-USA TODAY Sports

Dwight Howard will pay a $35,000 fine for his flagrant 2 foul to Kenneth Faried, but will not suspended.

In the 126-114 loss to the Denver Nuggets Wednesday night Dwight Howard was ejected for a flagrant foul. Early in the 3rd quarter Howard jumped up to contest Kenneth Faried and brought his hands down onto the sophomore players face, sending the Manimal to the floor. The league has now reviewed the incident from Wednesday's contest and has ruled that Howard must pay a $35,000 fine reports Mark Medina.

As for the suspension piece we can all exhale as the league has NOT suspended Howard.

However, Dwight has now picked up four points in the NBA's suspension system and should he dish out another flagrant 2 foul, will be forced to miss time.

If you haven't seen the foul Howard put on Faried, here it is.
