Courtney Lee, Nick Calathes and Beno Udrih, starting in place of the injured Mike Conley, scored 11 apiece, while Marc Gasol had 10 points.

DeMarcus Cousins' 23.8 points and 12.3 rebounds per game weren't enough to make the All-Star team. Bill Baptist/NBAE/Getty ImagesGolden State's Klay Thompson, Chicago's Jimmy Butler and Atlanta's Jeff Teague ‎are first-time NBA All-Stars after being selected by coaches in their respective conferences.

The league announced Thursday night that Teague is one of three members of the 38-8 Atlanta Hawks to make the Eastern Conference squad alongside teammates Al Horford and Paul Millsap.

But Sacramento Kings big man DeMarcus Cousins -- one of just three players in the league averaging better than 20 points and 10 rebounds per game alongside West starter Anthony Davis and reserve LaMarcus Aldridge -- and Portland Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard were the most prominent players snubbed by the coaches in the packed West.

NBA

NEW ORLEANS -- Pelicans coach Monty Williams says All-Star forward Anthony Davis has a mild groin strain and could play again as soon as Friday night against the Los Angeles Clippers.

Davis, who was hurt in the third quarter of Wednesday night's 93-85 loss to Denver, had an MRI on Thursday morning. The scan revealed a "grade 1" adductor strain, an injury that causes soreness from being over-stretched but which does not necessarily limit muscle function.

"He's walking around, doing some stuff -- nothing to break a sweat -- but he's walking around normally, so we'll see how he feels [on Friday]," Williams said. "If he feels up to it, we're going to play him his normal minutes."

MANILA – Meralco is scheduled to test KIA on Friday at the PBA Commissioner’s Cup at the Cuneta Astrodome.

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. -- Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak said he fully expects Kobe Bryant to play next season after the Lakers star suffered a recent season-ending shoulder injury.

"I don't think he's retiring," Kupchak said Thursday after the Lakers' shootaround. "He said he's looking forward to training camp. That's what we expect."

Bryant is expected to need nine months to recover from his third straight season-ending injury, a torn rotator cuff in his right shoulder suffered last week that he had surgically repaired Wednesday. If Bryant meets that timetable, he could return to basketball shortly before the start of the 2015-16 season, the final year of his contract with the Lakers.

MIAMI -- A strained right hamstring will force Heat shooting guard Dwyane Wade to miss Friday night's game against the Dallas Mavericks, and perhaps several more.

After sitting out Wednesday's practice, Wade spoke to reporters and closed the session by telling them, "I won't be seeing you for a little while."

The Heat have listed him as day-to-day, but teammate Chris Bosh hinted that Wade's absence may last weeks.
