WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Washington Wizards say the NBA has investigated a person who made threats to the team on Twitter after the first-round series win against the Chicago Bulls.

Polish center Marcin Gortat said on Thursday after practice that there was "one gentleman who really threatened us, actually made some terrorist threats to us."

Gortat said "he was saying there was a bomb on the plane and stuff, that my country's going to get bombed and all my family's going to die, just stuff like that."

The tweets came after the Wizards' Game 5 win in Chicago on Tuesday.

Wizards spokesman Scott Hall said the matter was turned over to the league. Added Gortat: "Some people already visited him."

The NBA did not immediately return a request for comment.
