The Clippers have been fined $50,000 by the NBA for head coach Doc Rivers’ statements that were inconsistent with Kawhi Leonard’s health status.

Regarding Leonard, Rivers said, “He feels great. But he feels great because of what we’ve been doing. We’re just going to continue to do it. There’s no concern here. But we want to make sure. I think Kawhi made a statement that he’s never felt better. It’s our job to make sure he stays that way,” according to Adrian Wojnarowski.

The Clippers have basically been fined because Doc Rivers keeps contradicting the league office’s justification for letting them sit Leonard, according to ESPN’s Tim MacMahon.
