After an earlier incident in which Atlanta Hawks players Thabo Sefolosha and Pero Antic were arrested at a New York City night club on Wednesday morning, both players will not play on Wednesday night against the Brooklyn Nets.
Sefolosha and Antic were arrested in an incident in which Indiana Pacers forward Chris Copeland and his wife were both stabbed at 1 OAK night club on Wednesday morning.
Here are the details to which Sefolosha and Antic will miss Wednesday night's game, according to the Hawks:
#Hawks Thabo Sefolosha sustained an injury to his ankle during his arrest. Has a bandage on his right ankle. Out for tonight (per ABC NY)— Zach Klein (@ZachKleinWSB) April 8, 2015
Also out for the Hawks are Paul Millsap and John Jenkins, as Peachtree Hoops notes:
The Hawks also announced on Wednesday afternoon that shooting guard John Jenkins did not travel with the team due to illness, meaning that Atlanta will be shorthanded without Antic, Sefolosha, Jenkins and the previously injured Paul Millsap.
No word from the NBA on whether or not there will be any suspensions for Antic or Sefolosha.
The Nets and Hawks tip-off at 7:30 PM EST.
