Ben Simmons elbowed Kyle Lowry in the... um, family jewels. Could face league discipline.

There could be a couple players seeing fines from the league out of Philadelphia’s Game 3 blowout of Toronto.

Pascal Siakam earned a technical and should get fined for a blatant trip of Joel Embiid, something Siakam owned up to and apologized for postgame.

The other is Ben Simmons, who behind the play elbowed Kyle Lowry in the... groin, we’ll say groin. Crotch is another term. Family jewels. You get the idea.

Lowry may not think it’s a big deal, but the NBA league office may feel differently. That’s the kind of play the league wants to curb, and it could do so with a fine to Simmons. The NBA is about as predictable as a roulette wheel when it comes to fines, but this is something to watch.
