Two NBA players robbed of cash and jewelry by masked gunmen and bound with duct tape in separate incidents have detectives in Chicago and a nearby suburb asking if someone is targeting professional athletes. Detectives have not found a link between the robbery of Miami Heat forward Antoine Walker in his Chicago home in early July 2007 and the Saturday, July 28 robbery at the Burr Ridge home of New York Knicks forward Eddy Curry, said Chicago police spokeswoman Monique Bond.

A judge in Chicago has issued an arrest warrant for New York Knicks player Eddy Curry because he's failed to appear in court in connection with a civil lawsuit.

Cook County sheriff's spokesman Steve Patterson says the agency received the warrant June 14 and has contacted Curry's attorneys. Curry grew up in the Chicago area and used to play for the Bulls.

Court records show the case was a personal injury lawsuit filed by Christina White. Her attorney, Larry Rogers, says Curry failed to make a payment but declined to give details because the case is under seal.
