NBA fines Suns forward Warren $15K for comment to ref

NEW YORK (AP) — Phoenix Suns forward T.J. Warren has been fined $15,000 by the NBA for directing inappropriate language toward an official following his ejection from a game.

The fine was handed down Wednesday by league discipline executive Kiki VanDeWeghe.

The incident occurred with 1:44 remaining in the second quarter of the Suns’ 123-119 overtime loss to the Los Angeles Clippers on Monday night.

In his first game back after missing five with an ankle injury, Warren had just been ejected for drawing back-to-back technical fouls.
