The Toronto Raptors have been fined $25,000 by the NBA for "failing to comply with league policies governing player rest and injury reporting."

No other details, including which specific players were involved in the inaccurate reporting, were given by the NBA.

Toronto did rest Pascal Siakam, Kyle Lowry and OG Anunoby in its win over the Orlando Magic on Friday on the heels of back-to-back games earlier in the week.

The Raptors (23-24) are back in action on Sunday against the Oklahoma City Thunder. They are currently in a tie for the final play-in round spot in the Eastern Conference.
