Marc Stein: World roster for the Rising Stars game — which will NOT be played this year — as the NBA announced via @nba_topshot: Precious Achiuwa, Nickeil Alexander-Walker, Deni Avdija, RJ Barrett, Facundo Campazzo, Brandon Clarke, Luguentz Dort, Rui Hachimura, Theo Maledon, Mychal Mulder.

The Rockets, remember, could have traded Harden to the 76ers for Ben Simmons, but rumblings persist that Tilman Fertitta, Houston’s owner, pushed for the Nets’ deal built heavily on draft compensation in part because he could not bear to send Harden to Philadelphia, where Morey landed after their frosty parting. Amid the Nets’ surge to No. 1 in the N.B.A. in offensive efficiency (117.9 points per 100 possessions) and the Knicks’ unforeseen rise to No. 4 in the cushier Eastern Conference, I hope you haven’t missed last month’s other major development in the East: Simmons has responded to the sting of bracing himself for a trade to Texas with the best two-way basketball of his life.
Of late, teams have essentially built a wall in the paint to try to block his relentless attacks on the rim. The strategy has only created more opportunities for Zion’s teammates. His assists-per-game averages have steadily climbed, from 1.0 in December to 2.8 in January to 4.5 in February as he resurrects his days as a high school point guard and facilitator. “Playing with Z is amazing,” Pelicans backup center Willy Hernangomez said. “He just makes it easy. He’s just an animal or beast. Zion has been dominant.”
Dallas Mavericks star Luka Doncic has been downgraded to doubtful for Wednesday night’s home game against the Oklahoma City Thunder due to low back tightness. A source told ESPN that Doncic is still expected to play in Sunday’s All-Star Game even if he sits out Wednesday, which is the Mavs’ final game before the break.
