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.

It appears that the Chicago Bulls are souring on Jabari Parker, who will reportedly be pulled from the regular rotation, according to ESPN’s Malika Andrews.

The 23-year old Parker came to Chicago via a two-year, $40 million deal during the offseason, and marked a return to his hometown and a chance to re-ignite his career.

Now, it appears certain that the Bulls will decline his option, sending Parker back to free agency next summer.

“Jabari has been great,” Bulls head coach Jim Boylen said, according to Andrews. “He understands. Jabari wants to make it about helping the team win. And that’s what I’ve asked him to do.”

Parker has averaged 15.8 points and 7.1 rebounds for Chicago this season.
