Heat's Mario Chalmers fined $15,000 for forearm to Blake Griffin

By Royce Young | NBA writer

Mario Chalmers has been fined $15,000 for hitting Blake Griffin with a forearm in Miami's win on Thursday, the league announced Friday.

On the play, Griffin was setting a pick and Chalmers came high with a forearm to his throat area. He was assessed a foul on the play, but after review, the league upgraded it to a Flagrant 2.

That type of foul was a point of emphasis for the league heading in to this season, watching unnecessary contact on screeners.
