INDIANA PACERS VIDEOS

April 9, 2015 Updates

Indiana Pacers forward Chris Copeland is recovering in a New York hospital's intensive care unit after a Wednesday morning stabbing incident but issued a statement Thursday thanking those who have supported him during his ordeal. "I just want to thank everyone for their well wishes and prayers. I'm overwhelmed with the outpouring of support. I look forward to coming back stronger than ever. Thank you," he said in a statement given to ESPN's Josina Anderson. ESPN.com

A source said the Hawks players were not in Copeland's party at 1Oak Club. Antic and Sefolosha were released without bail after a brief court appearance in which they were charged with obstructing governmental authority and disorderly conduct. Their attorney, Alex Spiro, said they did not commit any crime. "They should not have been arrested. We fully expect the case to be dismissed," he said. ESPN.com
