Grizzlies' Ed Davis fined $15,000 for 'unnecessary contact'

The NBA is docking at least one more player before the actual season begins on Tuesday.

The league announced Monday that Grizzlies forward Ed Davis has been fined $15,000 for "excessive and unnecessary contact" on the Rockets' Donetas Montiejunas in a preseason game Oct. 25. 

The play occurred in the fourth quarter with Davis fouling Montiejunas hard near his head (happens at 1:50 in the above video). Davis was assessed a Flagrant 2 for the play and ejected. 

This is one of many fines and suspensions the league handed out this preseason as it clearly tries to trim down a bit on unnecessary physicality.
