Bridges made headlines in April when he struck a young fan with his mouthguard after a moment of frustration on the court.

After he was ejected in the fourth quarter of a single-elimination game against the Atlanta Hawks for a second technical foul, the power forward removed his mouthguard and tossed it at a screaming game attendee, but his aim was off. Video shows the mouthguard instead flying into the face of a young girl.

Bridges — whose season ended that night — addressed the incident on social media almost immediately following the final buzzer, tweeting: "Somebody get me in contact with that little girl. That's unacceptable."

According to ESPN, Bridges also told reporters, "That's definitely unacceptable on my part, and I take full responsibility. I'm ready for any consequence that the NBA gives me."
