Denver Nuggets guard Isaiah Thomas appeared to get into an altercation with a fan during his team’s 121-112 win Tuesday night over the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Thomas appears to walk up to a screaming fan before being restrained, and ultimately walking away. It is not clear exactly what is being said during the altercation. (RELATED: Cavalier And Celtics Agree On Trade Involving Kyrie Irving And Isaiah Thomas)

The apparent altercation doesn’t appear to be a big deal. However, it’s almost never a good idea for a player to engage a fan. (RELATED: Get Ready, Isaiah Thomas Is About To Ball Out In Cleveland)
On the court, Thomas has been playing well and looks like he could be a key piece for a Nuggets squad that currently sits in second place in the Western Conference, one game behind the two-time defending NBA champion Golden State Warriors. The last thing he needs is something silly like this as a distraction.
