Houston Rockets guard Kevin Porter Jr. got slapped with a pretty hefty fine of $50,000 after breaking the NBA's health and safety protocols during a recent trip to Miami.

The notice says it “prohibits indoor social gatherings” and a few of the Rockets players went out to enjoy the Miami nightlife. The biggest story was the assault on Sterling Brown, who was left with facial lacerations after getting in a fight. Porter was seen stepping in to avoid his teammate from further injury.

The NBA has tightened up protocols for teams traveling in an effort to limit contact tracing and exposure to COVID-19. In fact, the Rockets had a hotel further away from the Miami nightlife scene, although that didn't stop Porter and some of the Rockets players from finding a way down there.

Porter was placed in health and safety protocols and missed a few games before making his return on Tuesday night against the Minnesota Timberwolves. Porter's time in Houston has been a success after coming over midseason in a trade with the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Porter is averaging 15.2 points with 3.8 boards and 6.2 assists in 22 games in Houston, although the Rockets seem on a sure-fire path for the worst record in the entire NBA.

The fine should hurt Porter's wallet a little bit, although after the way he's played in Houston he should be in line for a nice payday in the near future.

The Rockets have had a tumultuous month in April, going 2-13, and finish up the month with a matchup against the Milwaukee Bucks.
