Per the report, the Mavericks star was confronted by a group of Russians at one of these clubs over him "switching" National Basketball Association teams.

The Dallas Mavericks are investigating an altercation involving Kristaps Porzingis this weekend in his native Latvia that left the All-Star bleeding above his right eye.

Video of the aftermath of the incident obtained by TMZ showed an agitated Porzingis in a torn shirt, pushing someone out of the way and approaching a group of men before several people stopped him and urged him to calm down. It doesn't appear that the women was part of the initial offending party, however, as she comes over with Porzingis when he begins to speak with what appears to be the authorities. That's what appears to have happened with Kristaps Porzingis of the Dallas Mavericks. Dallas reportedly has been told that Porzingis was jumped and hit with objects in the alleged assault. "We will provide an update when one is available".

One news outlet is reporting that a source said some Russians were upset that Porzingis was traded to another National Basketball Association team in the state and approached the National Basketball Association player and an argument broke out. In March, a woman accused the National Basketball Association star of raping her in his apartment hours after suffering his knee injury. Porzingis has "unequivocally" denied the allegations. He will enter restricted free agency this summer, but the Mavericks hope to sign him to a five-year maximum contract.
