Recent scans show Dylan Windler’s ankle still has some ligament damage, which is causing quite a bit of pain.

Drew Hill: Ja Morant on potentially playing Jaren Jackson Jr. in the ASG: “I’m definitely setting up an action where we can meet each other at the rim. We’re going to see if I’m really him, or maybe if he’s him. Either I’m dunking on him or he’s blocking it. If I miss it don’t count”
Drew Hill: Taylor Jenkins on Dillon Brooks walking the edge: “He and I talk about it. I won’t go into full detail because I want to keep that stuff private. I always tell him to keep that competitive edge, because that’s what makes him special. When there’s opportunity teach him and grow. We have great honest dialogue where he knows he can stretch us too far or he’s gotta do more.”
