More details are coming out as part of an investigation into an assault on Houston Rockets player Sterling Brown at a strip club in Miami.
Brown was said to have suffered facial lacerations and other lacerations “throughout his body” as the result of an altercation at the Booby Trap.
The injuries he suffered that night could’ve been so much worse if not for his teammate.
Kelly Iko and Shams Charania of The Athletic reported that Kevin Porter Jr. stepped in during the incident and prevented a group of people from inflicting further damage on Brown.
“If he hadn’t been as physically strong and tough, he might not have made it out of the situation (Sunday) night,” one source told The Athletic. “He could have died.”
Porter was “roughed up a bit” by the group that assaulted Brown, but he was still able to play against the Heat on Monday. The entire situation came about after Brown entered the wrong sprinter van after exiting the club. He reportedly got into an argument with the people inside and was jumped by a group described as “three or more individuals” and was hit over the head with a bottle.
Brown was eventually taken to the hospital and treated for the resulting injuries.
In 24.1 minutes, Brown is averaging 8.2 points (42.3% on 3-pointers) and 4.4 rebounds per game.
