NBA fines Dillon Brooks $35,000 for shoving cameraman

Dillon Brooks was chasing a loose ball in the second quarter against the Heat Thursday night, an innocent enough play but Brooks crashed into the cameraman crouched next to the courtside table.

Then Brooks shoved the cameraman. That earned him a $35,000 fine from the league.


The cameraman was injured and was still undergoing medical evaluation two days later, according to Heat radio play-by-play man Jason Jackson.

The Heat went on to win that game 138-119, keeping them solidly in seventh in the East with an outside shot at climbing into the top six. Memphis is tied with Sacramento for the 2-3 seeds in the West and may get Ja Morant back from his suspension next week.
