loading video… (please wait a moment)

There’s already happenings this early afternoon in Los Angeles. So let’s breakdown the latest news:

*Doc Rivers has been fined $15,000 for not leaving the court in a timely manner Friday against Phoenix. He was ejected by official Steve Javie and let Javie have it afterwards.

“I just told my last son he’s going to have to get a scholarship,” Rivers joked. “The other three do, so Spencer has to get to work. But I didn’t leave on time. I kind of expected that.”

*Glen Davis is questionable with a strained right hamstring. Davis said he is unsure whether he can play and Rivers said he thought he could but then is leaning towards holding him out.
