Chris Anderson excused from Denver Nuggets

Anderson has not been arrested or charged and is fully cooperating with authorities.

In February, a California law enforcement agency tipped off the Colorado Child Crimes Unit, launching a three-month investigation.

Authorities took Anderson's computer and other items. The heavily-tattooed Anderson is better known as "Birdman" for the wings tattooed on his arms.
