Memphis Grizzlies forward Dillon Brooks has been fined $35,000 by the NBA for shoving a camera person on the sideline during a game against the Miami Heat.

The incident occurred late in the second quarter and resulted in the camera operator being seriously injured and remaining under evaluation.

Although Brooks was not issued a technical foul at the time, he was previously suspended for exceeding the league's technical foul limit during a loss to the Denver Nuggets earlier this month.

With every two technical fouls this season, he faces another suspension without pay.For the Grizzlies, Brooks' potential suspension is just one of many difficulties the team is facing.

All-Star guard Ja Morant has been implicated in multiple off-court allegations and was suspended for eight games by the league after posing on Instagram Live with a gun at a Denver night club.

Forward Brandon Clarke sustained a season-ending Achilles tear during a recent game and is now out for the rest of the season.

Morant is eligible to return to the team on Monday after serving his suspension and has taken "full responsibility" for his actions.

He has discussed undergoing therapy to address his behavior.

The Grizzlies, who were on a three-game winning streak before their loss to the Miami Heat, currently sit at No. 2 in the Western Conference standings.
