NEW YORK -- The NBA has fined Denver Nuggets center Nikola Jokic $25,000 for using derogatory and offensive language during a postgame interview.

Jokic was fined for saying "no homo, he's longer than you expect" when asked by reporters about Wendell Carter Jr. after the Nuggets' overtime victory against the Chicago Bulls on Oct. 31.

The fine was handed down Wednesday by league discipline executive Kiki VanDeWeghe.
