NEW YORK — The NBA has fined Toronto Raptors general manager Masai Ujiri $25,000 for using profanity in a public place.

Ujiri was speaking at a public rally Saturday before the Raptors hosted the Brooklyn Nets in Game 1 of their first round playoff series when he shouted "(Bleep) Brooklyn!" He later apologized.

The NBA announced the penalty Monday night, a day before the Raptors host the Nets in Game 2.
