I definitely didn’t expect to see an NBA player miss time because of a strip club altercation, but welcome to life in pro sports.
Wild stuff happens all the time, and that’s pretty much the best way to sum up what happened here. Some guys were at the strip club, things went south, a fight reportedly started and now Porter is out for health reasons.

I have nothing against strip clubs or the future doctors and lawyers who work at them. However, maybe save the strip club visits for the offseason. I’d say the same thing about bars or regular clubs. There is plenty of time in the offseason to party.
Hopefully, Porter is back to full health as soon as possible.
