Mavs’ Kristaps Porzingis fined $50,000 for breaking COVID protocols

The NBA fined Dallas Mavericks big man Kristaps Porzingis $50,000 for visiting a club May 23 in violation of the league’s current COVID-19 policies. Specifically, Porzingis broke “the rule prohibiting players from going into any bar, club, lounge, or similar establishment, regardless of the player’s vaccination status,” NBA president of league operations Byron Spruell said in a statement. However, Porzingis was not suspended and will not be forced to miss time during the Mavericks’ first-round playoff series with the Los Angeles Clippers.
