Forward Derrick Williams has more to worry about than just his New York Knicks' 14-16 record.

According to TMZ Sports, the New York Police Department is searching for two women said to be at Williams' apartment before "roughly $617k in jewelry" went missing. Reportedly, on Dec. 19, the two women entered Williams' residence at around 5:20 a.m. and left approximately 90 minutes later. The former Arizona Wildcats star noticed the jewelry's disappearance later that day.

John Annese of the New York Daily News added that "the swag included a $145,000 watch, a diamond chain bearing the Hennessy logo worth $25,000 and a $35,000 Rolex, police sources said."

The police released surveillance video of the two women Wednesday that was taken at Up&Down nightclub. Pictures from that video can be seen in Annese's story.

TMZ pointed out that the two women are not officially suspects but rather persons of interest.

Williams is averaging 7.3 points and 2.4 rebounds in 13.6 minutes of action per night for the Knicks this season.
