NEW YORK (AP) — Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid was fined $10,000 by the NBA on Saturday for directing an obscenity at LaVar Ball on social media.

Embiid directed the obscenity at Ball, the father of Los Angeles Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball, in an Instagram Live video this this week.

Earlier, Embiid tweeted about LaVar and Lonzo Ball to 76ers teammate Ben Simmons, saying: "Please dunk on him so hard that his daddy runs on the court to save him."
