Report: Gilbert Arenas fined $50,000 by Wizards for faking knee injury
Gilbert Arenas was fined $50,000 for faking a knee injury in order to get more playing time for Nick Young, Comcast SportsNet is reporting.
Arenas played but did not start Thursday in the Wizards' preseason loss to the Milwaukee Bucks. He saw action in his first game at Verizon Center since his January suspension, but left after about three minutes because of what the team said was a mild groin injury.
CSN's Chris Miller, who reported the amount of the fine, says he was told that the groin injury is real and that Arenas could have returned to the court had this been the regular season.
