    Seems like an unlikely thing for someone who’s just torn his ACL to do.

    Dallas Mavericks forward Kristaps Porzingis is being investigated in New York for an alleged rape that a woman told police took place last year, according to a New York Post report.

    The woman told police on Thursday about the alleged attack, according to the Post report, which cited law enforcement sources. The woman reportedly told police that she waited more than a year to come forward because she had discussed getting $68,000 from Porzingis to keep quiet.

    Porzingis’ attorney, Roland G. Riopelle, denied the allegations and said they had previously referred the case to federal authorities due to the “accuser’s extortionate demands.”

    “We are aware of the complaint that was made against Mr. Porzingis on Friday and unequivocally deny the allegations,” Riopelle said. “We made a formal referral to federal law enforcement on Dec. 20, 2018, based on the accuser’s extortionate demands. We also alerted the National Basketball Association months ago, and they are aware of the ongoing investigation of the accuser by federal law enforcement. We cannot comment further on an ongoing federal investigation. Please refer any questions to the Federal Bureau of Investigation or the National Basketball Association.”

    Porzingis was playing for the New York Knicks and had sustained a torn ACL just hours before the alleged attack, which the woman told police happened Feb. 7, 2018, at the Sky building in New York where Porzingis lived.

    The woman, who reportedly lived in the same building, said she had accepted an invitation to Porzingis’ apartment prior to the alleged attack.

    When asked if the Knicks were made aware of the incident, a team spokesperson said, “This is Kristaps’ personal matter and not related to the Knicks.”

    Porzingis was traded to the Mavericks earlier this year, but he has yet to play for them, as he still is recovering from his injury.

    Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, in an email to the Post, said the team is aware of the accusation, but, “We have been instructed by federal authorities not to comment.”

    Cuban declined further comment when contacted by ESPN.

    An NYPD spokesperson would not confirm the Post report, issuing this statement: “The NYPD takes sexual assault and all rape cases extremely seriously, and urges anyone who has been a victim to file a report so we can perform a comprehensive investigation, and offer support and services to survivors.”

    yes

    and the big news today was Griffin and Siakim and that wasn’t reported before game lock

    so we’re not getting slate-impacting news until after the games start

    Griffin cost me on Yahoo (main slate I had him)

    Every time I get a chance to pop in here, somebody is with a hooker on the third shift or someone with a torn ACL is sexually assaulting someone.

    Never was ruled out. There was a blurb after lock saying he was available if needed.
