I will put it this way. I see hands on the ball handler too which was before the contact. The ball handler did not appear to seek the contact of the defender, the defender was touching the ball handler. So again if that is the case I would rule this contact with the face incidental. If he seeked out to make contact with the elbow, then maybe.

Again this is a situation I think the NF needs to address better but just because you had contact with an elbow, does not mean it is automatically a foul.
