The three players, LiAngelo Ball, Jalen Hill and Cody Riley, could serve the punishment at the hotel where the UCLA and Georgia Tech teams stayed in Hangzhou, the Hyatt Regency Hangzhou.

Earlier this week, LaVar told reporters that the situation "ain't that big a deal," but has been uncharacteristically quiet since.

So, when his younger brother, LiAngelo Ball, got arrested for allegedly shoplifting during a UCLA team trip to China, of course Lonzo was asked about it. As he was leaving the hotel, LaVar Ball downplayed LiAngelo'a arrest, telling ESPN: "He'll be fine". Chinese authorities have up to 37 days before deciding whether to obtain official approval for an arrest, said Margaret K. Lewis, a Seton Hall professor of law specializing in the Chinese legal system.

Chinese foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said Thursday that the case was in the hands of local police.

Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott said the conference was directing specific questions about what transpired to UCLA.

Ball, Hill and Riley will not play in the game.

If tried and convicted, LiAngleo Ball and his teammates could face between three and 10 years in prison.

"We are aware of a situation involving UCLA student-athletes in Hangzhou, China", UCLA said in a statement Tuesday.

"We are very disappointed by any situation that detracts from the positive student-athlete educational and cultural experience that this week is about", the statement said.

The arrests came a day before President Donald Trump arrived in China during his tour of Asia. A former college basketball player who has been training his sons since they were kids, LaVar Ball said he could beat Michael Jordan one-on-one and that Lonzo, while still in college, was better than two-time NBA MVP Steph Curry.

He is already a third of the way there.

The trio will not play against the Yellow Jackets and could miss additional games.
