Milwaukee Bucks center Greg Monroe, Los Angeles Lakers Nick Young and D’Angelo Russell were each issued fines for their roles in a third-quarter scuffle Friday. Monroe was fined $35,000 for shoving Young. The Lakers swingman was fined $25,000 for initiating the altercation when he shoved Bucks guard Malcolm Brogdon.

Russell was fined $15,000 for entering the altercation and pushing Monroe in the skirmish. All three players were issued technical fouls and ejected with 36 seconds remaining in the third quarter. The Bucks won, 107-103.

Several other players were involved in the melee, which had officials conferring for several minutes before issuing punishments. The defeat officially ended any chance the Lakers (20-49) to reach the NBA playoffs, stretching their post-season drought to a record four consecutive campaigns. The Lakers have never missed the playoffs in more than back-to-back seasons until the current futility run. (AFP)
