The Sacramento Kings said Saturday they will allow Ron Artest to return to the team, five days after his arrest on suspicion of domestic violence.
The Kings called a news conference for Saturday afternoon to discuss the return of the controversial forward after missing two games. Sacramento hosts the Denver Nuggets on Sunday.
Artest was excused from all team activities Tuesday, one day after being arrested at his home in a Sacramento suburb. A woman called 911 and said she had been assaulted, and a police report said Artest had slapped the woman's face and grabbed her repeatedly, causing visible injuries on her hand and leg.
Artest was arrested on suspicion of domestic violence and using force or violence to prevent the woman from reporting a crime. He was released from custody after posting a $50,000 bond and is awaiting a March 22 arraignment.
