Trae Young has been fined $20,000 for directing inappropriate language toward a game official.

The incident occurred following the Hawks’ 118-117 loss to the Dallas Mavericks on Feb. 10.

The play that Young disputed was correctly ruled a no-call. Under the playing rules, Dallas’ Willie Cauley-Stein was entitled to a normal step on a screen from behind, which he took, and which led to incidental and legal contact between Cauley-Stein and Young.
