Houston Rockets guard Kevin Porter Jr. will be out for several days after an alleged altercation at a strip club.

According to Yahoo Sports, The Athletic reported that Porter and other Rockets teammates got involved in a physical altercation after their teammate Sterling Brown was beaten upon getting in the wrong vehicle at a Miami strip club. Porter reportedly sustained injuries during the situation. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

According to Shams Charania, coach Stephen Silas has announced that the earliest Porter will be back is Sunday because of safety protocols.

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.
