Two fans who were part of a confrontation with Washington Wizards guard Isaiah Thomas during Saturday’s game in Philadelphia have been banned from the Wells Fargo Center for a year, a 76ers spokesperson said Sunday.
Thomas was ejected from the 76ers’ 125-108 win in the fourth quarter after he went into the stands to verbally confront one of the fans during a timeout.

Thomas said he was running back after making one of two free throws and that a fan had “both of his middle fingers up and said, ‘F— you, b—-,’ three times.”
A 76ers spokesperson said the fans acknowledged using inappropriate gestures and language toward players last night, which is a violation of arena policy.

The season-ticket holder for the seats has had them revoked and will receive a refund for the remaining games, the spokesperson said.
