NBA spokesman Mike Bass said in a statement Saturday that the league is in the process of authenticating the validity of the recording posted on TMZ's website. Bass called the comments ''disturbing and offensive.''
Messages seeking comment from the Clippers were not immediately returned.
The Clippers were practicing in San Francisco ahead of Game 4 of their first-round playoff series against the Golden State Warriors on Sunday. Los Angeles leads 2-1.
In the recording posted on TMZ, the man questions his girlfriend's association with minorities. TMZ reported the woman, V. Stiviano, is of black and Mexican descent. The AP couldn't immediately independently verify it was Sterling's voice on the recording.
