MINNEAPOLIS (KMSP) -

Minnesota Timberwolves forward Dante Cunningham was arrested early Thursday morning in Wayzata, Minn. on allegations of domestic assault.

Cunningham, 26, was booked into the Hennepin County Jail shortly after 6 a.m. Thursday, where he was being held without bail. Charges have not yet been filed.

Police were called to a home on Medina Road at about 4 a.m. Thursday. The woman involved in the alleged assault did not require medical treatment. Cunningham left the scene shortly after the incident but returned to the home, spoke to police and did not resist arrest.

The incident is still under investigation.

"We are aware of the matter involving Dante Cunningham and are in the process of gathering more information. Dante will not be traveling with the team to Miami this afternoon," the Timberwolves said in a statement. "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."

The Timberwolves hosted the Memphis Grizzlies at Target Center on Thursday. Cunningham scored 5 points in 10 minutes off the bench in a 102-88 win for the Wolves.

Dante Cunningham will be an unrestricted free agent after this season. He earned $2.1 million this season after the Timberwolves exercised the team option on his contract.
