AP source: NBA investigating Lakers-Rockets dustup

The NBA is looking to see what sanctions Chris Paul, Rajon Rondo and Brandon Ingram should face for their roles in an altercation that marred the final minutes of Saturday's game between the Houston Rockets and Los Angeles Lakers.

A person with knowledge of the situation said Sunday that the NBA was investigating what led to the altercation. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because neither the teams nor the league released any details of the probe.

It's likely that some sort of announcement comes by Sunday night, simply because Paul and the Rockets are scheduled to play in Los Angeles against the Clippers. The league typically delivers sanctions before a player involved in an incident can appear in his next game.
