“Brown was jumped outside of a club in Miami late Sunday night, hit in the head with a bottle and needed medical attention into Monday, sources tell The Athletic,” wrote Shams Charania. “Multiple sources with knowledge of the incident said it was a serious altercation.”
The idea of NBA players visiting strip clubs isn’t unusual, with then-Los Angeles Clippers guard Lou Williams sparking an uproar last year when he visited one in Atlanta during play in the NBA bubble.
Brown, who was in town with the Rockets to play the Heat on Monday night, is in his first year with the team after playing his first three seasons with the Milwaukee Bucks.
In 51 games for the Rockets this season, Brown has started 14 contests and averaged 8.2 points, 4.4 rebounds and 1.4 assists per game.
The bad news for the Rockets is just the latest in a season’s worth of misery that’s seen the franchise begin a rebuilding campaign after being a strong contender for the Western Conference title in recent years.
