Heat fined $25,000 for violating NBA's injury-reporting rules

Earlier today, the NBA announced that the Miami Heat have been fined $25,000 for violating the league's injury reporting rules.

The Heat failed to disclose an accurate game-availability status for several players prior to its contest against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Dec. 14 at Paycom Center.

The announcement didn't specify which players were labeled inaccurately on Miami's injury report, but Jimmy Butler was held out to rest his right knee and Gabe Vincent was also sidelined with a knee issue.

Miami went on to win the game 110-108, with Tyler Herro hitting the game-winning shot at the buzzer.

Herro finished with 35 points, 9 threes and 3 rebounds, while Bam Adebayo contributed 15 points, 13 rebounds, 3 assists and 2 steals.

The Heat's next game is Saturday on the road against the San Antonio Spurs.

Miami is currently 15-15, which is the eighth-best record in the Eastern Conference. The Heat have the NBA's seventh-best defense (allowing 108.1 points per 100 possessions), but they rank 26th in offense (scoring 107.6 points per 100 possessions).
