Gortat fined for flopping

Gortat was caught flopping during the Wizards' 88-84 win over the Utah Jazz on Wednesday. 

The incident occurred in the fourth quarter when Gortat exaggerated a small push from Jazz forward Rodney Hood when both players were trying to get a rebound. 

After the push, Gortat stumbled into the stanchion and Hood was called for a foul. 

According to the NBA anti-flopping rules, a player will receive a formal warning for his first flopping offense. He will then be fined $5,000 for a second offense and $10,000 for a third.
