Best Answer

If the player is fouled while in the act of shooting and does not make the basket, he will receive two free throws, each worth 1 point. If the player is fouled while in the act of shooting and makes the basket, he is given the basket (2 points or 3 if it is outside the 3 point line) as well as one free throw worth 1 point.

When are free throws awarded in basketball?

You receive a free throw when someone fouls you on a shot attempt. You will receive two free throws if you attempted a two point field goal, three for a three point field goal, and if you make the shot while being fouled (two or three), you will get one free throw. If a team has 4 team fouls (four fouls committed total by one team in one quarter), a player will shoot two free throws when fouled when they are not shooting. One player is chosen to shoot a free throw when a technical foul is given, which usually results from unsportsmanlike conduct.

If the wrong player shoots free throws can they be disallowed and the proper player brought to the line after both free throws are made?

If the refs make that big a mistake, then they shouldn't be reffing. That usually NEVER happens in a game. If it does, however, the proper player MUST shoot both free throws (the only time that another player who wasn't fouled can shoot is if the player fouled is injured).


Can injured players shoot free throws?

If you are able to, you can. If you cannot shoot your free throws, someone else may shoot them for you, but you may not enter in that game again. Oftentimes the player will shoot the free throws and then be substituted out.

What does foul to give mean?

In basketball, teams are allowed to commit a certain number of fouls in a period or half without penalty. Once this number of fouls is exceeded, free throws are awarded when a defensive foul is committed regardless of whether the foul was committed while a player was shooting.In the NBA, up until the 5th foul of a quarter, any defensive foul committed while the offensive player fouled is not shooting does not result in free throws. Once a team commits it's 5th foul, all of that team's fouls committed on defense result in free throws.In U.S. college basketball, up until the 7th foul of a half, any defensive foul committed while the offensive player fouled is not shooting does not result in free throws. Once a team commits it's 7th foul, all of that team's fouls committed on defense result in free throws.You might hear the announcers say that a team is 'in the bonus'. That means that the other team has committed enough fouls (5 in the NBA and 7 in U.S. college) that each time the team is on offense and the other team commits a fouls, the team will shoot free throws.The term 'foul to give' means a team is below the number of fouls allowed in a quarter/half and can commit a defensive foul on a non shooter without having free throws awarded. In the NBA, a team that has committed 3 or less fouls in a quarter is said to have a 'foul to give' because, if they foul a non shooter, it will not result in free throws awarded. In U.S. college, a team that has committed 5 or less fouls in a half is said to have a 'foul to give' because, if they foul a non shooter, it will not result in free throws awarded.You might also hear the announcers say that a team is 'over the limit'. This is the opposite of 'foul to give'. 'Over the limit' means the team has committed enough fouls in a quarter/half so that every defensive foul they commit will result in free throws.
