The league uses a points system to dole out suspensions for flagrant fouls. When a player reaches five points, an automatic one-game suspension is invoked. Nowitzki now has two points.
A flagrant-two is described in the NBA rulebook as being unnecessary and aggressive.
A flagrant-two also carries with it an automatic ejection and a $1,000 fine. The ejection, however, cannot be carried over to the next game.
Nowitski scored 16 points in Wednesday's loss.
