Denver Nuggets player target of investigation

DENVER (AP) -- Denver Nuggets reserve center Chris "Birdman" Andersen has been excused indefinitely from all team-related activities after Douglas County sheriff's deputies searched his home on Thursday as part of an investigation by the department's Internet Crimes Against Children unit.

Andersen won't be on the bench when the Nuggets face the Los Angeles Lakers in Game 6 of their playoff series on Thursday.
 
The team issued a statement saying Andersen has been "excused from all team-related activities indefinitely as he deals with the reported investigation" and declined further comment.
 
The 10th-year pro hasn't played in the postseason after averaging 5.3 points and 4.6 rebounds during the regular season.
