When reporters asked LaVar Ball about the situation on Tuesday, the outspoken father of Lonzo, LiAngelo and LaMelo told ESPN that LiAngelo will "be fine" and that the incident "ain't that big a deal". The others could not be reached.

A UCLA spokesman did not confirm or deny the information, referring to the school's statement that it was cooperating with local authorities. The paper's Ken Sugiura is traveling with Georgia Tech, which plays UCLA in Shanghai on Friday.

If that is the case, the three players would not be with UCLA when the Bruins are in Kansas City later this month for the CBE Hall of Fame Classic.

Three UCLA men's basketball players arrested in China on suspicion of shoplifting a day before US President Donald Trump's visit, have been confined to their hotel, pending legal proceedings.

The players will not participate in the Pac-12 China Game against Georgia Tech, according to UCLA coach Steve Alford.

Afterward, Ball, Riley and Hill were taken to the police station in Hangzhou, where they were kept for a number of hours.

"They weren't messing around", the source shared.

The Chinese courts are controlled by the ruling Communist Party.

LaVar Ball, the father of the Ball athlete family, isn't anxious.

Often, however, China will deport foreigners suspected of having committed relatively minor offences without going through the whole process.

The US State Department and UCLA athletics officials declined to address how long legal proceedings might take.

As he was leaving the hotel later Wednesday, LaVar said: "I'm going to wait until I get some more intel on what's going on, and then I can tell you what's up".

Chinese foreign ministry officials previously said that the Chinese government had reported the incident to USA officials.

Van Gundy's contempt was seemingly more at the situation itself, than any one entity in particular, but was specifically outraged that the players would be taking an overseas trip and miss a bunch of class time.
