Joel Embiid does not have structural damage in his sprained left shoulder, Philadelphia 76ers coach Brett Brown said Thursday, but the center will still be out for at least a week, a source told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

The gesture occurred with 17 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter and his comments came during an on-court interview at the conclusion of the 76ers' 129-112 victory over the Atlanta Hawks on February 24 at Wells Fargo Center. I'm running the clock down and I feel like the game is over. "But when I made that statement, I didn't actually say that I was", Embiid said in the interview. As soon as Huerter stole the ball from Embiid, the big man immediately gave him the emphatic middle finger.

Moments later, he dropped an f-bomb on live television during a postgame interview, though he immediately apologized as soon as it came out of his mouth.

In announcing the fine, the National Basketball Association noted that the amount "reflects his multiple prior violations of acceptable on-court decorum".

Shark Tank's Barbara Corcoran Loses $388700 After Employee Falls for Phishing Scam
Corcoran's bookkeeper received the deceitful email and falsely believed the email was sent to her by Corcoran's assistant. Corcoran's company didn't detect the error until her real assistant noticed the hacker altered her email address.

The bonehead yet not that surprising move from Embiid resulted in a $25,000 fine.

It's been an eventful month for the 76ers and their star in Embiid.

Sideshows aside, Embiid will have to anchor the 76ers in their final push to the playoffs.

Philadelphia consequently faced the New York Knicks on Thursday without All-Star duo Embiid and Ben Simmons, who is reportedly set to miss two weeks with a back problem.
