NBA Fines Toronto Raptors $25K For Resting Uninjured Players

The Toronto Raptors found themselves in some hot water with the league over the weekend.

Let’s first just gloss over the fact that the Oklahoma Thunder have essentially outcasted Al Horford for the remainder of the season. On Friday night, the Raptors listed both Kyle Lowry and OG Anunoby out due to rest and subsequently were fined $25,000 by the NBA.

The reason for the fine is the Raptors “failed¬†to comply with league policies governing player rest and injury reporting.”

One can only hope that this small slap on the wrist doesn’t make ownership spiral. The Toronto Raptors have been patiently crawling to the season’s finish line after enduring an entire year of playing in Tampa Bay, a heavy bout with COVID-19, and a number of inconsistencies and injuries.

Despite resting two of the team’s best players and playing without Pascal Siakam and Gary Trent, both of whom are battling nagging injuries, the Raptors were able to secure a 113-102 victory over the Orlando Magic.

The Raptors are set to take on the Oklahoma City Thunder on Sunday.
