UCLA players could be stuck in China for months, dad says

Chinese lawyers told Yahoo's Dan Wetzel that Ball, Jalen Hill and Cody Riley could be sentenced to 3-10 years in prison if convicted on the charges.

Fournette also offered some insight into what may have been a reason for his benching.

"I haven't talked to him yet", Lonzo Ball said Wednesday night after his Los Angeles Lakers lost to the Boston Celtics.

The moves come a day after coach Bill O'Brien said they had discussed the possibility of adding Colin Kaepernick in the wake of a season-ending knee injury to rookie Deshaun Watson.

Lonzo Ball says he has not spoken with his younger brother LiAngelo since he and two other UCLA basketball players were reportedly involved in a shoplifting incident Tuesday in China. Team representatives and translators were with the players during that time, according to a source.

The University of California, Los Angeles, team is in China for its season-opener against Georgia Tech on Saturday in Shanghai.

A U.S. State Department official said the department was aware of reports of three American citizens arrested in China and stood ready to provide assistance but had no further comment due to privacy considerations. While the three athletes remained in Hangzhou, the rest of UCLA's Bruins basketball team continued their trek to Shanghai to play Georgia Tech on Friday.

Scott did not elaborate on what occurred and said the league was directing all inquiries about the specifics of the matter to UCLA.

"Whether in the United States or overseas, we expect our student-athletes to uphold the highest standards", it said.

"He'll be fine. He'll be fine", LaVar told ESPN while referring to his son. "He'll be fine. Everyone's making it a big deal".

LaVar later released a statement about LiAngelo's shoplifting allegations: "It is a very unfortunate situation that the Ball family and UCLA has to deal with at this particular time".
