Nets player questioned in Pa. sex assault probe
Philadelphia Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey says Blatche was among the witnesses interviewed by police on Tuesday. Ramsey told reporters preliminary findings of the investigation show Blatche was not involved.
Officer Jillian Russell says the possible assault reportedly happened around 3:30 a.m. Tuesday in a room at the Four Seasons Hotel.
The Nets were in Philadelphia to play the 76ers. Blatche was expected to play.
"He's going to play," Nets coach P.J. Carlesimo said. "He's been playing well and I expect him to play well today."
General manager Billy King said the team had no further comment.
On Tuesday, Blatche wrote about the incident on Twitter. "Im ok and I didn't do anything jus was n the area when it happened," Blatche tweeted. He later took down the tweet, and eventually posted: "Gettin ready for the game."
Police tell WCAU-TV that a 21-year-old woman was taken from the hotel to a local hospital.
