Kerr made the announcement after Golden State's preseason game against the Portland Trail Blazers while calling the situation "the biggest crisis that we've ever had." He declined to disclose the amount of the fine.

"He is going to come back to practice on Thursday," Kerr said. "He has been fined. He will not be suspended. I expect him to play Friday in our last preseason game and on opening night."
