Harden has been handed a flopping warning by the league after exaggerating contact against the Trail Blazers on Nov. 5. [2]

On the play, Harden was attempting a jumper as Wesley Matthews contested it. Harden threw his head back to signal contact to the face, though Matthews never made contact.

Harden’s next flop will cost him $5,000.
