When the Timberwolves take on the Los Angeles Clippers tonight at Target Center, league officials will be on the lookout for floppers: Players who exaggerate the force of a collision with an opponent and make it appear that a foul has been committed.
Timberwolves guard J.J. Berea is a known flopper. He's been cited twice by the league and fined $5,000. If he flops again, it will cost him $10,000.
