Lonzo Ball keeps quiet on his brother LiAngelo after shoplifting incident in China

Andrew Bogut TALL

Lavar Ball, the outspoken father of the Ball brothers, stated that the shoplifting situation "ain't that big of a deal" and that LiAngelo "will be fine". Ball and his team are now in the Asian country to play a preseason game against Georgia Tech scheduled on Friday.

Ball, Cody Riley, and Jalen Hill are back at the hotel required by authorities to stay there while the investigation plays out.

But Jerome Cohen, the faculty director of New York University's U.S. -Asia Law Institute, told USA Today the fact the players were released on bail and allowed to leave police custody was a "very good sign" they'd be given a light sentence.

Chinese officials wouldn't confirm the ESPN report that Ball, Riley and Hill were arrested.

"There is a lot of uncertainty around how long they will need to be in that position before there's some update on the situation", a source who spoke under the condition of anonymity told the website.

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

President Trump met with Chinese President Xi Jinping in Beijing on Thursday to discuss trade, North Korea and a range of other topics.

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. As he was leaving the hotel, LaVar Ball downplayed LiAngelo'a arrest, telling ESPN: "He'll be fine".
