The NBA announced on Monday that they fined Pacers star Paul George $10,000 for "contributing to the altercation" with Marcus Morris at the end of the Pacers win over the Pistons on Saturday night. For his part, Morris was fined $15,000 for shoving PG.
At least this time PG didn't get in trouble for talking. But the tab of NBA fines George has accumulated through 33 games is impressive, currently sitting at $68,000. Scott Agness breaks down the bill.
Paul George’s 2015-16 fine total: $13K - 6 techs $10K - criticism of officials $35K - criticism + profanity $10K - altercation = $68,000— Scott Agness (@ScottAgness) January 4, 2016
George Hill questionable
Food poisoning kept George Hill out of practice on Sunday and he remains questionable for the game in Miami, according to Candace Buckner.
George Hill (food poisoning) was not at shootaround this morning. Also missed practice yesterday in IND. Hill will be "questionable" vs MIA— Candace Buckner (@CandaceDBuckner) January 4, 2016
The Pacers plan to start big against the Heat, so if GHill can't go, C.J. Miles will likely slide into the starting shooting guard slot next to Monta Ellis in the backcourt.
