Amir Johnson was fined an undisclosed amount by the Philadelphia 76ers for checking his cell phone during their game 1 loss to the Brooklyn Nets.
"I take full responsibility and will accept the consequences of my actions. I also apologize to my teammates, the 76ers organization and the fans for the distraction this has caused," said Johnson in a release.
Brett Brown said Johnson's actions were "completely unacceptable."
Joel Embiid defended Johnson, saying his teammate was checking up on his sick daughter.
