The Chris Copeland and Thabo Sefolosha incidents in a NY nightclub last week continue to get more interesting by the day. Both guys were injured rather seriously, but both are expected to make a full recovery.
Regarding Sefolosha, he broke his leg that night and he’s saying it was caused by the police while they were arresting him.
“I would like to begin by expressing my gratitude to my family and friends, the Hawks organization and my teammates. This has been a difficult time for me and I truly appreciate the support I have received from everyone. I am extremely disappointed that I will not be able to join my teammates on the court during the playoffs and apologize to them for any distraction this incident has caused. I will be cheering for them every step of the way and will be diligent in my rehabilitation.
“On advice of counsel, I hope you can appreciate that I cannot discuss the facts of the case. Those questions will be answered by my attorney in a court of law. I will simply say that I am in great pain, have experienced a significant injury and that the injury was caused by the police.”
