Houston Rockets star Christian Wood became the center of attention earlier this week after he tossed a pass into the stands that drilled a woman as she was walking during a game against the Charlotte Hornets.

When asked about his misguided pass after the game, Wood expressed concern for her well-being. “I hope she’s OK. If she needs tickets to a game, I got her,” he said, per Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle.

Wood took to Stories to briefly reflect on the incident once again, and extend an offer to the woman. “Happens to the best of us, shaqtin .. courtside tix to any rocket game of her choice,” he wrote.

Instead of getting the opportunity to sit court side and watch the third-worst team in the NBA, the woman would like for him to directly apologize. Speaking with Inside Edition, the woman said she didn’t appreciate that he included a laughing emoji in his response, and considers his entire message to be inappropriate. She has allegedly been advised by her doctor to not return to work for three weeks after inspecting the marks on her face.
