The Philadelphia 76ers have been slapped with a $50,000 fine after violating the rules pertaining to injury reporting in the case of Joel Embiid.

Embiid suit up for the Sixers in Game 3 of their showdown with the Miami Heat on Friday, putting up 18 points and 11 rebounds to help Philly get their first win in the Eastern Conference semifinals series. However, he was initially listed as doubtful for the game.

“The 76ers have been fined $50,000 for violating league injury reporting rules. The team failed to disclose Joel Embiid’s participation status in an accurate and timely manner prior to Game 3 of their conference semifinal playoff series vs. the Miami Heat on May 6,” the NBA announced, per Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.

The status of the Cameroonian big man for the contest was only revealed just minutes before tip-off. While there have been reports that he is warming up to see if he could play, his availability wasn’t really clear.

With that said, it’s understandable why the NBA hit the Sixers with the punishment. Besides, they did the same thing to the Phoenix Suns when they were late announcing the availability of Devin Booker for Game 6 of their playoff series with the New Orleans Pelicans.

Philly cannot be too bothered by the fine, though, as they need to focus on the task at hand: tying the series before it shifts back to Miami.
