Oklahoma City Thunder star Russell Westbrook will not be disciplined by the NBA for shoving a fan at the conclusion of Thursday night’s game in Denver, the league told ESPN.

The fan left his seat, wasn’t stopped by security, stepped onto the court and came face-to-face with Westbrook in the moments after the Nuggets’ buzzer-beating, 127-124 victory.

The NBA board of governors will make key decisions in the coming month as they navigate the pandemic. Among them will be when to begin free agency and to hold the draft.

Several league sources said the 2020 draft is expected to be pushed back from June 25 to September. However, one high-ranking league source, said it will be impossible to conduct the draft in September. The official noted that, if all goes well, the league will still be playing late into September.

Two of the sources also said the board of governors would also discuss whether the upcoming free-agency period should be moved ahead of the draft. Free agency for the 2020-21 season will be moved from the scheduled start of 6 p.m. June 30.
