Miami Heat’s Justise Winslow will feel a little lighter in the wallet after the league assessed a fine of $15,000 for intentionally stepping on the facemask of Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid during the 3rd quarter of Game 3.

The league made the announcement on Friday.

“Justise stepped on it and tried to break it with his hands, but little do they know is I have about 50 of them, so it’s going to take much more than that to get me out of this series,” Embiid said following Game 3 (h/t ESPN).

“He kept throwing [his mask] on the ground. I don’t know if he didn’t like it or what,” Winslow said. “I was talking to JoJo, we were smack-talking, trash-talking, going back and forth, but no love loss.”

The series has been chippy, making things very interesting as we head to Game 4 on Saturday.

“I’m in a great situation,” Rozier said, according to NBC Sports Boston. “My team felt it wasn’t good for me to sign an extension right now. It opens my options a little bit, but I’m focused on what’s happening right now.”

The New York Knicks are not expected to give Kristaps Porzingis a contract extension before the end of Monday’s deadline, which will make the budding franchise player a restricted free agent next summer, according to ESPN’s Ian Begley.

Porzingis’ season-ending torn ACL and a desire to create as much cap flexibility so they can be major players in next summer’s free agency appear to be the main factors in the team coming to this decision.
