Markieff Morris #11 and Marcus Morris #15 of the Phoenix Suns

*Phoenix Suns players Marcus and Markieff Morris have pleaded not guilty to two counts of felony aggravated assault.

The twins are accused of helping three others beat 36-year-ld Erik Hood outside a Phoenix recreation center on Jan. 24.

According to a Phoenix police report, Hood says five people, including the Morris brothers, repeatedly punched and kicked him. Hood says he suffered a fractured nose, abrasions and a large bump on his head.

The brothers entered their pleas Thursday morning in Maricopa County Superior Court. Their next court appearance is an initial pretrial conference set for June 30.

The 6-foot-9 twins became teammates in 2013 when Marcus was traded to the Suns.
