As Hassan Whiteside awaits word from the NBA office on possible further consequences from his Flagrant 2 foul Monday night against Boston Celtics forward Kelly Olynyk for a two-handed shove to the back and subsequent ejection, the emerging Heat center already has incurred significant financial penalties for his on-court conduct this season. Based on his combination of technical fouls, ejections and his $15,000 league fine for last week's skirmish with Phoenix Suns center Alex Len, Whiteside, who earns $770,000 this season, has already been sanctioned $40,000 by the NBA prior to a ruling on the Olynyk incident.

During the segment, Clippers guard Dahntay Jones walked into view of the camera, bumping Green as he went past. Green did not take the gesture kindly, and told reporters as much in the locker room. "I think he wanted a reaction from me, but he don't play," Green said, taking note that Jones is averaging a career-low 4.6 minutes per game this season. ESPN.com

He explained his lack of reaction, saying, "Me getting suspended and him getting suspended, it's different." He added, "If [Dahntay Jones] gets suspended they may not even notice." Green expressed that the bump should warrant scrutiny, saying, "I definitely expect that to be reviewed by the NBA. For him to look at me, look at me again, and bump me when I'm doing a postgame interview; that's really smart, too, when it's on ABC. The postgame interview is the highlight of that segment and you bump somebody." ESPN.com
