Oklahoma City Thunder guard Dennis Schroder will be reportedly fined $25,000 for hitting Houston Rockets forward P.J. Tucker below the belt. Tucker will also be fined $25,000 for headbutting Schroder during the third quarter of OKC's Game 5 loss to Houston in Orlando.

Both fines were first reported by ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski on Sunday afternoon.

Upon an officials' review, Schroder and Tucker were both assessed flagrant fouls and ejected from the game.

As a result of the fines, neither Schroder nor Tucker will serve a suspension for Monday's Game 6.

Houston leads the best-of-seven series three games to two.
