May 9, 2023

The NBA has fined Nikola Jokić $25,000 but won't suspend him over his courtside altercation with Phoenix Suns owner Mat Ishbia.

The NBA announced the fine for "improper contact with a spectator sitting courtside" on Monday.

The incident took place during the second quarter of Sunday's Game 4 between the Suns and Denver Nuggets, which Phoenix won 129-124. Jokić went into the courtside seats to retrieve a loose ball that had bounced out of bounds. Ishbia had corralled the ball and held on to it as Jokić tried to take it from him.
