Denver Nuggets guard Nate Robinson has been fined $10,000 by the NBA.

Robinson was fined for pushing and striking Oklahoma City Thunder center Steven Adams on October 15th in a preseason game. He will not appeal the fine, and some thought he may get suspended for the incident.

Robinson will be coming off the bench this season for the Nuggets, and came off of the bench last season with the Chicago Bulls. In the same game, Robinson suffered a hamstring injury and just returned to practice today.

Last season, he played in all 82 games with the Bulls and averaged 13.1 points, 2.2 rebounds, and 4.4 assists per game. That was his only season with the Bulls.

He has been one-and-done with teams in recent years. He has not played multi-years with a team since starting with the New York Knicks from 2005-06 through the 2008-09 season.

Besides playing for the Knicks, he has played for the Boston Celtics, Oklahoma City Thunder, Golden State Warriors, and the Bulls.
