Kristaps Porzingis Attacked Outside Latvian Nightclub

The Mavericks are investigating after Kristaps Porzingis was reportedly involved in a ‘bloody altercation’ outside a nightclub in his Latvian hometown.

Video has emerged showing the 7’3″ forward sporting a gash on his forehead. The team says Porzingis was ‘jumped and assaulted’ and that they are investigating.

Even stranger are reports from TMZ that Porzingis was attacked by men who were angry that he was traded from the Knicks to the Mavericks earlier this year. Porzingis has yet to suit up for the Mavericks while recovering from a torn ACL.
