The player is identified as Nets forward Andray Blatche, according to multiple reports cited by CBS New York.

According to police, a 21-year-old female filed a complaint alleging that she was sexually assaulted inside the Four Seasons Hotel in Center City at about 4a.m. Tuesday.
The female complainant was taken to an area hospital for an examination. Investigators are waiting to further question the woman before any decisions will be made on potential charges. No charges have been filed, CBS Philly reports.
Sources say the basketball player and his associates were taken to the Special Victims Unit for questioning. They have all since been released, according to the station.
The Nets are in Philadelphia to play the 76ers at the Wells Fargo Center tonight.
"We are aware of the ongoing police investigation regarding a member of the Brooklyn Nets," general manager Billy King said in a statement. "We will have no further comment until the investigation has concluded. All of our players are available for tonight's game."
