Celtics’ Wilcox Fined $25K For Obscene Gesture
BOSTON (CBS) – Boston Celtics forward Chris Wilcox has been fined $25,000 by the NBA for making an obscene gesture towards fans during Friday night’s loss in Philadelphia.
During the fourth quarter of Friday night’s 95-94 overtime loss, Wilcox was featured on the video board at the Wells Fargo Center, and was caught giving the camera man the middle finger when a “Kiss Cam” segment ended with a shot of him and teammate Jared Sullinger.

Wilcox, who serves as Kevin Garnett’s replacement off the bench, is averaging 4.5 points and 2.3 rebounds per game for Boston this season.
The fine is Boston’s second of the season, as Garnett was also hit with $25,000 fine last month for his role in an on-court altercation with the Brooklyn Nets.
