76ers fined

NEW YORK – The NBA announced today that the Philadelphia 76ers have been fined $100,000 for violating league injury reporting rules.

The 76ers failed to accurately disclose the game availability status of Joel Embiid prior to their game against the Oklahoma City Thunder on April 2.  Embiid was listed as “Out” in Philadelphia’s initial injury report and subsequently played in the game.  The fine takes into account the 76ers’ prior history of fines for violating injury reporting rules.
