The NBA has fined the Nets $25K as a result of what it deems to be inadequate reporting of player injuries, the league announced in a press statement today.

Brooklyn has been penalized for “failing to comply with league policies governing injury reporting,” the NBA revealed.

Brian Lewis of The New York Post reports (via Twitter) that Brooklyn was fined as a result of the team’s late pregame decision to sit eight players in an eventual surprise 136-133 win over the Pacers on December 10.

The absences for that contest included stars Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving, plus big-minute rotation players like guard Ben Simmons, swingman Joe Harris, starting forward Royce O’Neale, and starting center Nic Claxton.

This lack of timely transparency with regard to player availability is an approach that doesn’t always endear itself to the NBA, which has targeted teams’ wallets in the past for these incursions.
