Miami Heat F/C Meyers Leonard has been fined $50,000 and given a one-week suspension from all team activities after making an anti-Semitic slur on a Twitch feed last Monday. The disciplinary process follows an investigation by the NBA, of which the Heat were a part. Leonard will also be required to participate in cultural diversity training.
