Phoenix Suns forwards Markieff and Marcus Morris are facing felony assault charges stemming from an alleged fight outside a recreation center in January.

As per a daily from US,the twin brothers were two of five men that attacked Erik Hood following a high school basketball game held at a Phoenix gym on Jan. 24.

The altercation was believed to be over an inappropriate text message that Hood, who graduated from the same Philadelphia high school as the brothers, allegedly sent to the Morris’ mother.

The Morris brothers, who are due to appear in court on May 7, released a statement regarding the incident.”We have been advised by our attorneys not to discuss this case or make any statements about it,” said the statement. “We are sorry for the distraction this has caused to our fans and the Suns.”

Markieff Morris, who has spent his entire four-year career with the Suns, started all 82 games this past season and averaged personal bests of 15.3 points and 6.2 rebounds per game.

The Suns acquired Marcus Morris in a trade with Houston in February of 2013. The 25-year-old averaged 10.4 points and 4.8 rebounds over 81 games in 2014-15.

Both players signed multi-year contract extensions with the Suns prior to the start of the 2014-15 campaign.
