Update: The Timberwolves say the weren’t aware of the incident until after the game, so the fan was not ejected. But he has been banned from the arena for one year.

Timofey Mozgov said a fan touched him during Friday’s Cavaliers-Timberwolves game in Minnesota. Video confirms that account.

Here’s another angle:

If the Timberwolves can identify that fan, he should be banned from NBA arenas. Touching a player is completely over the line.
