DALLAS (105.3 THE FAN) -  Kristaps Porzingis, the Dallas Mavericks' new star player, is recovering after an incident in his home country of Latvia. 

Porzingis was reportedly jumped at a nightclub over the weekend, and was seen walking out with his shirt ripped and a bloody eye. 

Some reports say several men attacked him because they were angry he left the New York Knicks to come to Dallas. Porzingis was traded to the Mavericks earlier this year, but has yet to play a game. He spent this recent season rehabbing his torn ACL. 

This is not the only headline Porzingis has made off the court. Investigators in New York are also trying to clear up reports that he sexually assaulted a woman last year.

In a statement, the Mavericks say they're aware of this incident in Latvia, and are working to learn more.
