The NBA has handed down a $5,000 fine to Indiana Pacers' forward Lance Stephenson for flopping and sent a warning to Miami Heat point guard Mario Chalmers, according to Kurt Helin of ProBasketballTalk.

Stephenson received a flop warning earlier this month, and as such was given a fine for exaggerating contact against the Warriors on Monday. Stephenson also received a flopping fine from the league last season.

Chalmers received the warning for his actions late in the fourth quarter of the Heat's Monday night loss to the Atlanta Hawks. The sixth-year player sent himself hurtling across the court after being bumped while jockeying for position on a rebound.

Players are assessed a $5,000 fine if theyare found to have flopped a second time after receiving a league warning. Helin reports that 21 players have received flopping warnings this season, with James Harden and Corey Brewer also receiving fines.
