WASHINGTON (AP) — Three more members of the Washington Wizards have met with authorities concerning the Gilbert Arenas gun investigation.

Caron Butler, Brendan Haywood and DeShawn Stevenson had to miss practice Monday to answer questions. Coach Flip Saunders and other players met with authorities last week.

Arenas is under investigation for bringing guns to the Verizon Center and related incidents stemming from a dispute with teammate Javaris Crittenton. Arenas has been suspended indefinitely by the NBA, and Crittenton has been excused from team activities while the legal process plays out.

The team also suspended Andray Blatche for one game for unspecified behavior during Sunday’s game against New Orleans. The suspension is not related to the Arenas investigation.
