After being in the bubble so long, what was the first thing you did when you got out of it? Justin Anderson: I think that with (everything) going on in the bubble it was important for me to get with my family and just relax, talk about it and really enjoy and embrace what just happened. There’s still guys in that bubble weeks later competing and playing games. I understand families are there now, but it was a unique situation and one for the history books. I think I needed more of a mental break and physical break. COVID has given us enough of a physical break but the last two to three weeks I’ve gotten back into it, and am staying under the radar and working my butt off because I think I did the hard part. Now it’s just about continuing to prepare for what’s next.

NBA Central: Brian Windhorst says Ben Simmons playing in front of Sixers fans is a ‘factor’ in him wanting out of Philadelphia “He doesn’t want to be in front of those fans. …I don’t think he intends to ever show his face there again.” (Via @Sirius XM NBA ) pic.twitter.com/Ltt0ccwARf
Here’s the deal … Jeffrey was at Casa Amigos bar in Scottsdale when he “fell and hit his head,” according to police. They say Jordan then became combative with security who were attempting to escort him out of the bar to receive medical attention. Scottsdale PD, who were in the area for an unrelated call, were summoned to assist. Cops interviewed bar staff, and eventually deemed the incident “medical in nature,” not criminal. An ambulance was called to transport JJ to a hospital.
After arriving at a local hospital, that’s when things allegedly took a turn. Jeffrey is accused of assaulting hospital staff while being treated for the injury he sustained at the bar. A report for aggravated assault, a felony, was taken at the hospital.
As for Jeffrey’s side, our sources tell us he was confused and disoriented following the fall. Jordan was NOT arrested or charged with a crime. As of this morning, he still remains in the hospital. Police tell us the relevant reports will be sent to the Maricopa County Prosecutors Office … where they will review the case and determine if charges are warranted.
