Minnesota Timberwolves forward Dante Cunningham was arrested early Thursday on suspicion of domestic assault.

“We are aware of the matter involving Dante Cunningham and are in the process of gathering more information,” the Timberwolves said in a statement Thursday. “Dante will not be traveling with the team to Miami this afternoon. The Minnesota Timberwolves organization takes the matter very seriously and does not condone the type of behavior that is associated with this situation. However, we need to let the legal process run its course, and will have further comment at the appropriate time.”

Cunningham, 26, was taken to Hennepin County jail shortly after 6 a.m. and held without bail pending charges.

A third-year pro from Villanova, Cunningham played Wednesday in Minnesota’s home game. He is averaging 6.0 points per game this season.

The Timberwolves also waived guard A.J. Price on Thursday.

During the 2013-14 NBA season, Price appeared in 28 games with the Timberwolves and averaged 1.6 points, 0.5 assists and 0.4 rebounds in 3.5 minutes per game. Playing in his fifth season out of Connecticut, Price has averaged 5.9 points and 2.2 assists in 15.3 minutes over a 235-game career.
