Following the dustup, Barnes, 35, texted a pal that he had not only assaulted Fisher, 41, but also took revenge on Govan, one source said.
“I kicked his ass from the back yard to the front room, and spit in her face,” the text read, according to the source.
“Derek’s not going to press charges; he’s going to let it go.” Fisher, who declined to comment in detail about the dustup, looked no worse for wear before the Knicks’ preseason game against the Brazilian Paschoalotto/Bauru team at Madison Square Garden on Wednesday night.
Govan was planning to file a restraining order against Barnes, sources said.
Reps for Barnes and Govan didn’t return requests for comment.
