The incident is said to have taken place mere hours after Porzingis tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee in what became his final appearance with New York.Porzingis' lawyer, Roland G. Riopelle, denied the allegation against the 23-year-old Saturday, while the National Basketball Players Association also publicly defended Porzingis in a statement released Sunday."We have been aware of these allegations for some time, have evaluated the accuser's claims and, based what is presently before us, stand with Kristaps,'' the union said, courtesy Marc Berman of the New York Post.Mavericks head coach Rick Carlisle could not say whether the organization was thoroughly informed about Porzingis prior to the trade."I have no knowledge of any of that, so, therefore, I can't comment on it," he said.When asked if Dallas will keep Porzingis out of practice for the foreseeable future, Carlisle denied the team would do so but they would allow him to step away temporarily of his own accord."No. With case of today, this was prescheduled. I don't see any change," he told reporters. "If he wanted to take some personal time away from being on the bench or whatever, we would certainly grant him that. But that would be his call." <p><a href="http://glbnews.com/url.html?p=https://www.thescore.com/nba/news/1747461" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"></a></p> </figcaption> </figure> <figure> <amp-img width="330" height="194" src="https://i.dailymail.co.uk/1s/2019/03/31/03/11673344-0-image-a-9_1553998030309.jpg" class="attachment-better-amp-small size-better-amp-small wp-post-image" alt="" srcset="https://i.dailymail.co.uk/1s/2019/03/31/03/11673344-0-image-a-9_1553998030309.jpg" sizes="(max-width: 300px) 300vw, 300px"></amp-img> <figcaption> The woman told the NYPD on Thursday that she was raped by Porzingis last year.
