(WMC) - Grizzlies forward Matt Barnes was involved in an altercation with former teammate Derek Fisher, according to the New York Post

Barnes' estranged wife and Fisher have been dating for several months after Fisher divorced his wife in March.

Barnes reportedly traveled 95 miles from the Grizzlies training camp in Stanta Barbara, California, to Los Angeles to confront Fisher after learning the two were dating.

Barnes and his wife are currently separated.

A source told the New York Post that Fisher received a few scratches and will not press charges. Fisher left the scene before police arrived, and no arrests were made.

The Grizzlies released a statement regarding the incident:

"We are aware and currently gathering information regarding today's report involving Matt Barnes. We have no further comment at this time."
