DALLAS -- The NBA fined Mavs guard Delonte West $25,000 for poking Utah's Gordon Hayward in the ear during Monday night's loss.

West will not be suspended for the bizarre incident -- called a "physical taunt" by the league office -- that occurred with 3:40 remaining in the first half.

A $25,000 fine will hit West harder than the vast majority of NBA players. He is making a veteran's minimum salary of $1.15 million this season and was in such financial straits during the summer that he worked as a mover for a furniture company.
