Following Sunday's victory over the Charlotte Bobcats, Miami Heat reserve guard Roger Mason and some family members were robbed while at a Miami restaurant.

According to the Miami Herald, four suspects entered the Ni.Do.Caffé in Miami and fired gun shots while robbing the customers of their valuables. Included in those valuables was a Rolex watch of Mason. Thankfully, nobody was hit from the gunfire and two of the suspects were arrested by police.

Police said Mason was robbed of a Rolex at Ni.Do.Caffé on Biscayne Boulevard and NE 73rd St. The crime occurred after the Heat's game against the Bobcats. WPLG Local 10 first reported the story. Four suspects entered the business and robbed its patrons of their valuables. Rounds were fired during the robbery, but no one was shot, police told WTVJ.

Mason did not speak with reporters after Monday's practice. His watch was recovered when police identified the getaway car on Monday night and apprehended two suspects after a car chase.

Mason signed a one-year deal with the Heat back in September. He has played in six games so far this season and started one of them. The 10-year veteran is averaging 3.0 points in 11.7 minutes while shooting 31.3 percent from the field.
