MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Milwaukee Bucks center Andrew Bogut apologized today for getting "caught up in the heat of the moment" and making an obscene gesture toward the home crowd while leaving the court.

Bogut may face disciplinary action from the NBA for the outburst, which came near the end of last night's 108-93 loss to Toronto.

The number one overall pick in the 2005 draft was ejected after committing a flagrant foul against Toronto's Chris Bosh with 49 seconds remaining.

Milwaukee television station WTMJ showed video footage of Bogut making a gesture toward the grandstands as he left the court.

If past history is any judge, Bogut could be looking at a hefty fine.

In January, the league fined Atlanta Hawks forward Josh Smith $25,000 for making an obscene gesture to the crowd after being ejected from a game against the Charlotte Bobcats.
