Potentially demeaning material at issue
Among the vignettes was a cartoon depicting Kings guard Doug Christie being led on a leash tugged by his wife, and one of forward Chris Webber being showered with money at the University of Michigan.
The skits were used Saturday before Game 3 of the best-of-seven series.
"I got a report late in the day today. All I can tell you right now is we're going to be looking into it," said NBA deputy commissioner Russ Granik, who was attending the Miami Heat-New Orleans Hornets game Tuesday night.
"It sounded to me like some of that may have crossed the line, but I don't want to prejudge it until I get a full report in the next day or so."
Granik said there are rules about not demeaning members of the other team.
"There are fairly stiff fines for violating those rules," he said.
