NBA fines Jordan Clarkson for forearming Goran Dragic


The brouhaha between Jordan Clarkson and Goran Dragic is going to cost… Clarkson.

NBA release:

Los Angeles Lakers guard Jordan Clarkson has been fined $15,000 for throwing a forearm above the shoulders to Miami Heat guard Goran Dragic, it was announced today by Kiki VanDeWeghe, Executive Vice President, Basketball Operations.

The incident occurred with 5:29 remaining in the third quarter of the Lakers’ 127-100 win over the Heat on Jan. 6 at Staples Center.

Though unsaid, this probably includes the resulting skirmish between the players. That amplified the incident into one that the NBA examined closely.
