Adrian Griffin has denied a series of domestic violence accusations made by his ex-wife on social media.
"This morning, accusations were made against me on social media by my former wife that I vehemently deny," Griffin said in a statement released by the team. "We are involved in a longstanding legal dispute over alimony and child support arrangements. I am disappointed to have to address false accusations in this way, and I apologize for any distraction this has potentially caused for our team at this important time."
The Raptors also put out a separate statement on the matter.
"When we saw these allegations this morning, we were dismayed -- Adrian is a valuable member of our team," the team said in the statement. "Our leadership immediately spoke with him, and he flatly denied the allegations in the posts. We will support the process as he and his former partner settle these matters."
Griffin acted as head coach in Wednesday's game.
Griffin has been an NBA assistant for more than a decade.
