In non- Kyrie news, the Grizzlies will be without 3 starters vs the Raptors tonight. No Ja Morant (wrist), Steven Adams (knee) or Dillon Brooks (suspension). Jaren Jackson Jr, who was questionable, will play. – 5:13 PM

Ja Morant will not play today due to left wrist soreness. Therefore, he won’t be available to reporters after the game. – 5:08 PM
Drew Hill @DrewHill_DM
Ja Morant in Cleveland on Thursday: “Anything, when it comes to being negative with the Grizzlies, we normally get the punishments. It ain’t the same.”
Why do you think that is?
“Most hated. They hate us.”
Why not?
“We don’t like them. I’m standing on that.” 1/2 – 5:06 PM

A couple of notes on Nets & Kyrie Irving, including members of BKN touching base with TOR on a deal during their negotiations with teams on Irving: pic.twitter.com/B85X5iliCH5:03 PM

Damichael Cole @DamichaelC
Ja Morant hinted in Cleveland on Thursday to reporters that there was something going on behind the scenes. He called the Grizzlies “the most hated.”
“It’s a little situation going on now, I ain’t gone speak on it yet. If some sh*t don’t change, y’all gone hear me speak on it.” – 4:59 PM
Brandon Rahbar @BrandonRahbar
Ja likely gets the starting All Star spot due to voting, but just wanted to drop this.

Harrison Wind @HarrisonWind
The Nuggets are 4.5 games clear of the Grizzlies for the No. 1 seed in the West. They’re tied with the Celtics for the best record in the NBA.
Here’s how Denver has done it:

Sam Quinn @SamQuinnCBS
There was a real chance the Mavericks were never going to get another All-Star if they didn’t move on Kyrie.
They just didn’t have the assets to win a bidding war against the Knicks, Thunder, Rockets, Jazz, Pels or Grizzlies.
They had to do this here and now. This is their shot – 3:38 PM
Sam Quinn @SamQuinnCBS
The Mavericks can still trade first-round picks in 2025 and 2027.
They still have plenty of room for improvement. They could use another big wing to replace Finney-Smith. Anunoby is probably out of their price range, but could they swing Kyle Kuzma? Alex Caruso? – 3:33 PM

Kurt Helin @basketballtalk
With Curry out for the All-Star Game, expect Ja Morant to get bumped up to being a starter. He was third in fan (and player and media) voting. – 2:20 PM
Austin Kent @AustinKent
Tyus Jones’ bounce pass is one of humanity’s greatest achievements. Don’t at me.

Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
I’m guessing Ja Morant will be elevated to start the All-Star Game. He was third in fan voting and overall in the guard voting.
Who replaces Stephen Curry will be interesting. De’Aaron Fox? Anthony Edwards? Someone else? – 1:36 PM
Memphis Grizzlies PR @GrizzliesPR
The @Memphis Grizzlies have recalled Jake LaRavia and Kennedy Chandler from the @MemphisHustle.
In addition, Vince Williams Jr. and Kenneth Lofton Jr. have been transferred from the Hustle to the Grizzlies. – 12:46 PM
