The NBA fined the Los Angeles Clippers $50,000 on Thursday for comments made about Kawhi Leonard and his injury status.

On Wednesday, the league said it accepted the Clippers plan to sit Leonard, who was listed on the injury report with an ailing knee, in the first of back-to-back games.

He did not play in a 129-124 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks – a game that was nationally televised by ESPN.

But a remark later made by coach Doc Rivers caught the attention of the NBA.
