ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) _ Miami coach Pat Riley expressed relief
today over the news that Heat forward Antoine Walker was not
injured during a robbery at the player's Chicago home.
Walker and one of his relatives were bound at gunpoint while
multiple robbers took a car, cash and jewelry from the three-time
All-Star's off-season residence Monday night.
Walker -- a Chicago native -- was shaken up, but not physically
The vehicle taken in the robbery was found, abandoned, in
Chicago this morning.
Police have not announced any arrests in the case.
In July 2000, Walker -- then a Boston Celtic -- was the victim
of an armed robbery along with N-B-A center Nazr Mohammed as they
sat in a vehicle waiting for a restaurant on Chicago's South Side
to open. Police said at the time that three men approached and
demanded cash and valuables.
