UCLA released a statement through team spokeman Alex Timiraos: "We are aware of a situation involving UCLA student-athletes in Hangzhou, China".

"The University came out with a statement, so I won't have any further comment on this other than in answering that question - those individuals won't play on Saturday", Alford said, according to the Associated Press.

LaVar apparently planned to address the media from his hotel suite Wednesday morning, but his lawyers advised him not to comment while the legal process is ongoing. "I'm going to wait until I got some more intel on what's going on".

"It'll be fine, it'll be fine. He'll be fine. Everybody making it a big deal; it ain't that big of a deal". Ball is the middle son of celebrity basketball dad LaVar Ball, who has earned celebrity with his bombastic speech and polarizing personality.
