Timberwolves fined $25,000 for violating NBA’s player resting policy



The Timberwolves were fined $25,000 by the NBA for violating the league’s player resting policy when they had point guard D’Angelo Russell sit out on Sunday in a 128-116 loss in Denver.

Resting players is nothing new in the NBA, but after having Russell play against Boston a week ago Friday coming out of the All-Star break, the Wolves decided to give Russell a game off. Here’s the NBA release on the fine and the Wolves’ reaction.
