L.A. Sparks
rookie Jantel Lavender -- the #5 overall pick in the 2011 WNBA Draft -- allegedly kneed her ex-BF in the junk so hard, his groin area was "throbbing from the pain" ... this according to legal docs obtained by TMZ.

According to court papers filed in L.A. County Superior Court, Lavender's ex Adam Ashley obtained a temporary restraining order against the 6'4" athlete two weeks ago ... claiming he's been "in hiding" ever since a July 5 altercation where Lavender allegedly grabbed a knife and threatened to kill him.

In the docs, Ashley also says Lavender "grabbed my head and slammed it into the wall. She grabbed my neck and was choking me."

Ashley claims it wasn't the first time Lavender got violent with him -- alleging she also tried to choke him during a fight in June.  During that altercation, Ashley claims, "While I was grabbing for her hands she kneed me in the growing [SIC] area. My private area was throbbing from the pain."

Jantel has been ordered to stay at least 100 yards away from Ashley until the next court hearing.

After the judge granted the restraining order against Jantel -- she filed a request for a restraining order of her own against Adam ... claiming he attempted to punch her during a recent screaming match at her home.

The two are set to meet in court on August 30.

Hey, maybe he really did mean "growing area". For all we know, he was getting excited by this little altercation. You know, until he kneed him in the crotch anyway.

there is no question there is a sexist double standard when it comes to domestic violence. people here find this funny, but if the roles were reversed, the man would be sitting in jail and there'd be an outpouring of sympathy for the woman.

this is why i no longer have sympathy for women when they are beaten or raped.

Of course TMZ would use one of the worst pictures of this woman for this headline - the suckafishs! ;) But anyways.. Why did it take this dude over a month to get a restraining order against her - if this all happened July 5th? Maybe if she's continuing to harass him? IDK...

His balls have been in hiding since then. They ain't to interested in coming back out after that abuse.

Good. I hope he stays far away from her. Having covered a story in SF where a woman's brains were blown out be her ex-boyfriend, the threat of crazed ex-boyfriends doing violence to a woman are unfortunately all too real. Jantel is an accomplished athletically and academically. This moron ex needs to go back to Ohio and get a life. What happened to his crotch he brought upon himself.

So she is 6'4", hmm? Maybe he's only 5'3" and 130lbs, I would be in hiding too!

I think the biggest shocker is that her ex is a man!?!? After all, she is in the WNBA.
