The incident comes one day after Cleveland grabbed a 3-2 series lead over the Chicago Bulls in the Eastern Conference Semifinals. It's unclear whether Perkins' playing status will come into question.

Cleveland signed Perkins after the Utah Jazz bought out the center following a trade with the Oklahoma City Thunder back in February. He's served as a limited role player for the Cavaliers, averaging less than 10 minutes during the regular season and under five minutes per game in five playoff appearances.

It's unknown at this time what sparked the argument with his wife.
