NBA players in trouble for hitting women

All NBA players are being investigated after hitting women, according to sources with knowledge of the situation. 

NBA players are involved in an alleged assault that happened on the field at the end of the San Antonio Spurs’ playoff game against the New Orleans Pelicans. 

Sources say players are facing multiple charges, including assault and battery on a woman. 

The NBA has not confirmed the allegations, and the league declined to comment. 

It’s the latest in a string of incidents in which players have been accused of assault and assault and sexual harassment, and are under investigation by the league.

The latest allegations come as the league has been criticized for its handling of allegations of domestic violence and sexual misconduct.

Players have been placed on indefinite leave, while the league announced an independent inquiry into its handling. 

Former San Antonio guard Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, a six-time NBA All-Star, was arrested in November for allegedly assaulting a woman at his home.

Sources say the incident happened at Kidd-Gillchrist’s home on June 28.

He was arraigned in February on a felony charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and is scheduled to be sentenced on Monday. 

In the NBA, there have been a number of suspensions and fines for players accused of domestic or sexual violence.

Former New Orleans guard Jeremy Lin was suspended for six games by the NBA in December for an alleged incident with his girlfriend, which included an alleged sexual battery. 

A league source told the Associated Press on Thursday that the investigation into the alleged assault had been ongoing for more than a year. 

“I’m not going to comment on anything that’s not in the public domain,” the source said.
