Indiana Pacers forward Chris Copeland, his former fiancee and another woman were stabbed outside of a New York City nightclub early Wednesday morning according to ESPN:

In a statement, the Pacers said Copeland suffered a knife wound to his left elbow and abdomen and is in stable condition. In addition, a source with knowledge of the situation told ESPN's Chris Broussard that Copeland fractured his elbow and will have surgery Wednesday.

"We are aware that Chris Copeland was injured early this morning in New York City," Pacers president of basketball operations Larry Bird said earlier Wednesday. "We are still gathering information and will update when we know more. Our thoughts are with Chris and those injured."
ESPN also reports that Atlanta Hawks players Pero Antic and Thabo Sefolosha who were also at the club were arrested on charges of obstructing the crime scene, after police said they blocked officers from trying to start their investigation.
