Heat’s Butler fined $25,000 for violating media access rules | NBA

NEW YORK – Miami Heat forward Jimmy Butler has been fined $25,000 for violating the league’s rules regarding access to media interviews and failing to comply with the resulting NBA investigation.

The league announced the fine Friday, saying it was due to Butler not fulfilling his media availability obligations during NBA All-Star Weekend, including after Sunday night’s game.

A six-time All-Star, Butler had two points and two steals in nine minutes for Team LeBron in their 163-160 win over Team Durant.
