The Rockets released a statement on Sunday addressing Brown's assault.

"Last night, Sterling Brown was the victim of an assault," the statement read. "He had no prior knowledge of or interaction with the assailants. He suffered facial lacerations but will make a full recovery. Sterling is not playing tonight because of his prior knee injury."

Brown has been sidelined with a knee injury dating back to April 10 without any timetable for a return. The facial lacerations he suffered in the assault are expected to postpone his return to the court.

Brown reportedly entered the wrong car when he was leaving the strip club, which sparked the physical altercation between him and another patron, according to Shams Charania and Kelly Iko of The Athletic.

Porter reportedly intervened in the altercation and prevented the assailants from inflicting further damage to Brown. Brown was rushed to Jackson Memorial Hospital after the incident, and teammates and coaches even 'feared for Brown's life' while he was in the hospital, according to The Athletic.
