The Associated Press

ATLANTA (AP) Pero Antic says he and Atlanta Hawks teammate Thabo Sefolosha were not with Indiana Pacers forward Chris Copeland when Copeland was stabbed outside a Manhattan nightclub.

Antic and Sefolosha were at the scene early Wednesday. They were charged with obstructing authorities and disorderly conduct and were released without bail.

Antic, speaking for the first time Friday about what happened, says he and Sefolosha "didn't even see" Copeland.

Antic says the stabbing of Copeland, Copeland's girlfriend and another woman "happened way before" the arrests. He says he and Sefolosha were not trying to shield police or onlookers from Copeland.

Sefolosha sustained a fractured right lower leg and ligament damage. He will miss the rest of the regular season and postseason.
