Washington Wizards guard John Wall and Boston Celtics forward Jae Crowder have been fined for their altercation after Wednesday night’s game, the NBA announced Saturday. During the incident, Crowder, who was fined $25,000 for “a postgame confrontation on the playing court” and for “attempting to escalate the situation after exiting the playing court,” pointed in Wall’s face and made contact with his nose. Wall, who was fined $15,000 for “his role in the confrontation on the court,” retaliated by swinging at Crowder.

Coach Jeff Hornacek indicated the Knicks followed the code used for a player being suspended for one game — which is 1/110th of his $21 million wage or roughly $200,000. A source confirmed that’s the mathematical formula the Knicks used. “The team fined him a pretty hefty amount — the amount of the fine for missing a game,’’ Hornacek said.
