NBA fined the Brooklyn Nets 50,000 dollars for violating local health and safety protocols by letting Kyrie Irving into the team locker room on Sunday (March 14), per Adrian Wojnarowski.

Kyrie Irving is allowed to enter the arena, but not the workplace environment – and the locker room is considered part of the Nets‘ workplace environment at the Barclays Center. Ultimately, the NBA fined the organization – not Irving – for the violation.

“The last two years have been a difficult and painful time for New Yorkers, as well as a very confusing time with the changing landscape of the rules and mandates. I do appreciate the task the Mayor has in front of him with all the city has been through. My frustration with the situation doesn’t change the fact that I will always be committed to helping the communities and cities I live in, and play in,” Durant said in his statement.
