Amir Johnson Of The Sixers Fined For Having Cell Phone On Bench During Game

The Sixers fell to the Nets at home in game 1 of their playoff series, but a big moment that happened during the game was from a player who wasn’t even active to play.

Sixers big Amir Johnson was caught on ESPN cameras on a cell phone, showing center Joel Embiid a text message during a game in which the Sixers were trailing.

Embiid spoke to reporters on Saturday after the loss and said the phone was there because Johnson’s daughter was sick, but that excuse still isn’t feasible for the Sixers to not hand out a fine.
