Lakers’ D’Angelo Russell Penalized $25K for Verbal Altercation with Ref

The NBA imposed a $25,000 fine on D’Angelo Russell, the guard for the Los Angeles Lakers, following an incident of verbal abuse directed at a game official.


The league’s decision came in response to an incident that transpired on the court subsequent to the Lakers’ concluding Game 5 defeat against Denver on Monday evening, as confirmed by official sources. The Lakers’ season reached its conclusion with a 108-106 loss in Denver, resulting in a 4-1 series victory for the Nuggets. Notably, Los Angeles discharged coach Darvin Ham from his duties on Friday after his two-season tenure.
