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.

Heat’s Udonis Haslem Uncertain About Future

The Miami Heat celebrated the career of Dwyane Wade this past season, ahead of the future Hall of Famer’s retirement at the end of the season, but another franchise legend may be out the door soon as well.

Heat forward Udonis Haslem, who has spent his entire 16-year career with the Heat, reflected on the celebration of Wade.

“Although nothing on the scale of what Dwyane has done for his one last dance, a lot of people feel like I should take the time to be celebrated at some point,” Haslem said, according to Ira Winderman of The South Florida Sun-Sentinel. “Personally, as the person I am, I feel like the Haslem family as a whole deserves the opportunity to celebrate when my career does come to an end. So that has some effect on a decision that we make.”

Haslem also commented on an after party following Wade’s final game, which included all of Wade’s family.

“My stepmom wasn’t there, my father wasn’t there, my wife wasn’t there, my kids weren’t there,” Haslem said. “So that wasn’t my moment. That’s what makes it hard, either way.”
