The NBA fined Toronto general manager Masai Ujiri $25,000 on Monday for using obscene language in a public setting.

Prior to the Raptors' playoff home opener against the Brooklyn Nets on Saturday, Ujiri addressed a large Toronto crowd outside the Air Canada Centre and shouted an expletive in regards to Brooklyn.

Ujiri apologized for his language during a brief session with reporters at halftime of the game, which the Raptors eventually lost 94-87.

Game Two is on Tuesday in Toronto.
