The Brooklyn Nets are now one of the few NBA teams that can truly call themselves full. The team is now injury-free and will field a full roster against the Toronto Raptors on Friday.
While this is an undeniably positive development for the Nets, they will not smile at the NBA’s recent decision to give them a $25,000 fine for a recent injury report violation. Apparently, league officials did not like the way Brooklyn decided to rest EIGHT players during Saturday’s win over the Indiana Pacers:
“The NBA announced today that the Brooklyn Nets took a $25,000 fine for failing to comply with league policies governing injury reporting.” reads an official statement from the NBA.

Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, Ben Simmons, Nic Claxton, Seth Curry, Joe Harris, T.J. Warren and Royce O’Neale missed the game against the Indiana Pacers for various reasons. It appears that the Nets made some sort of documentation error in reporting the injuries and the league, as always, acted quickly. We’ll see if there are any further developments.
