NBA reviewing Kelly Oubre Jr. of Washington Wizards for coat’s message

WASHINGTON — The NBA is planning to review Wizards forward Kelly Oubre Jr.‘s decision to wear a jacket with offensive language to his team’s game against the Cleveland Cavaliers on Friday night.

The black jacket was stitched with “f— you” in white lettering repeated vertically down the back, and Oubre turned to show it to a bank of cameras outside as he was arriving at the locker room.

The NBA has a dress code for players on game nights and has the option to issue fines for violations.

Oubre has been fined several times in his career. He was fined $15,000 last week for “aggressively entering an altercation” between teammate Bradley Beal and Golden State Warriors star Draymond Green.

He lost $18,242 last season after he was suspended for Game 4 of the Wizards’ playoff series with the Boston Celtics after charging C’s center Kelly Olynyk. He also was fined $25,000 last season for kicking a ball into the crowd. In 2015, he was fined for making an obscene gesture.
