Russell Westbrook has been fined $10K and assessed a post-game technical for his incident with Rudy Gobert on Monday but he won’t be suspended for Game 5.
The NBA apparently accepted that Westbrook came into the court as a substitution following a stoppage in play due to a foul called. This creates a somehow interesting precedent as the league has exercised a zero-tolerance policy regarding players leaving their bench in recent years. Westbrook has the single worst plus/minus of any player this postseason (-45) and the Thunder offense has struggled so far but he should be looking to give many answers tonight as the series moves back to Oklahoma City.
