National Basketball Association fines Clippers $50000 for statements about Leonard

Charlotte Hornets v Los Angeles Clippers Paul George Expected To Debut With Clippers By Nov. 14

The LA Clippers fell to the Milwaukee Bucks last night, 129-124. The NBA had fined the Clippers $50,000 before the game for statements made by the team and coach Doc Rivers that "were inconsistent" with Leonard's health.

"I'm disappointed. He's my coach and I'm on his side", Leonard said of the fine.

Essentially, Leonard was surprised that the National Basketball Association would just come out and say he has a knee injury especially when the Clippers were trying to keep the specifics under wraps. "It's our job to make sure he stays that way", according to Adrian Wojnarowski.

The NBA initially confirmed the Clippers were compliant with league rules in resting Leonard because of a knee injury. He had 27 points and 13 rebounds in a nationally televised 107-101 win over Portland on Thursday night. "We're going to manage it the best way we can to keep me healthy and that's the most important thing, me being healthy moving forward". Last season's roster thrived by dominating bench minutes, but that hasn't been the case so far this year.

The number of people calling out the Clippers was so substantial that the league had to step in and support the team's decision. "The league office, in consultation with the NBA's director of sports medicine, is comfortable with team medical staff's determination that Leonard is not sufficiently healthy to play in back-to-back games at this time".

Wednesday's game against the Bucks is the first in a back-to-back for the Clippers, who last played on Sunday at home.

Leonard is averaging career highs in points (29.3), rebounds (7.3), assists (5.7), steals (2.3) and blocks (1.0).
