"It is our understanding that Kristaps was jumped and assaulted outside of a club in Latvia," the Dallas Mavericks said in a statement about the incident. "We will provide an update when one is available."

A video has surfaced of Dallas Mavericks' Kristaps Porziņgis sporting a nasty looking injury on his face. It's unclear when the clip was taken, but he can be seen with a lot of blood above his eye as those standing by attempt to calm him down. The video, filmed in his home country of Latvia, shows him confronting a group of men after pushing an unknown woman to the side.
NBA insider Shams Charania revealed on Twitter that the Mavericks are currently investigating the situation. Reports indicate that he was jumped while out at a club, where he was "assaulted and hit by objects."
On the Mavericks Reddit, a fan who speaks Latvian elaborated on what happened in the video and claimed the video "might" have been filmed on May 9. "He's around some clubs and bars in his hometown Liepaja in this video," the user wrote. "Yells something about 'you bastards are done, I'll sent your ass back to Russia.' Incident might have happened in 9th of May, this is the day when Russian invaders are celebrating the occupation of Latvia. At least it seems in the context, since he's yelling the Russia thing."
TMZ reports that eyewitnesses on the scene explain that Porzingis was out celebrating an occasion when he was confronted by some Russian Knicks fans, who weren't happy about him changing teams. A fight reportedly broke out, although there's no indication on how many people were responsible for attacking him.
Porzingis hasn't played a game since suffering an ACL tear last season with the Knicks.
Back in March, Porzingis was accused of beating and raping one of his neighbors just hours after his injury. The news was made public after his trade to the Mavericks, with his accuser alledging that he referred to her as "my bitch" and "my slave" as he raped her. She claimed he stopped assaulting her after she continued to put up a fight.
