NBA fines Clippers $50K over Kawhi-related 'not a health thing' comments

NBA fines Clippers $50K over Kawhi-related 'not a health thing' comments

While appearing on Golic and Wingo, an ESPN radio show, ESPN analyst Doris Burke said she thinks Kawhi's load management rest is "ridiculous".

The Clippers improved to 6-3 for the season by beating the Trail Blazers at Staples Center, claiming Rivers' 900th win as a coach in the process.

If that is what Leonard did, as Rivers seems to indicate, it not only adds fuel to that fire, but hurts the league's credibility on load-management issues.

The league said in their statement about the fine that they determined Leonard is managing a knee condition.

While Clippers are copping plenty of flack for resting their star, the fact that Toronto set the blueprint past year for Leonard, makes it increasingly hard for Doc Rivers and ignore their recipe for success.

Jordan: Republicans Will Subpoena Whistleblower for Public Hearing
Jordan said Thursday he doesn't know the identity of the whistleblower but that Schiff should call the person to testify. Jordan and Meadows sit on the Oversight Committee, while New York's Zeldin serves on the Foreign Relations Committee.

However, hours later during his pregame remarks, Rivers said there was "no concern" about the forward's health, a comment that appeared to undercut the league's stance about the severity of Leonard's injury. I've gotta do what's gonna make me healthy and what's gonna help the team be successful, and that's me being able to play basketball for us. "It's more like we did it in the first game back-to-back the other day. Now if you're a Kawhi fan and you're from Utah, then that's just a tough one".

The call in question was an offensive foul drawn by Milwaukee point guard Eric Bledsoe on Clippers guard Lou Williams with 7:18 left and the Bucks up 108-101. That's important. But he played a lot of minutes in the playoffs previous year. Does anyone remember or care about the games Kawhi missed with the Raptors? Kawhi not playing is ridiculous at this point.

"It's a joke", said Twitter user James Wolfe.

Unfortunately for Bledsoe, he also had the most-embarrassing play of the NBA's regular season so far.
