Bucks owner Marc Lasry said the Bucks will not be drafting Joel Embiid at No. 2 in the draft.
It probably has more to do with them wanting Jabari Parker than Embiid's recent foot injury and surgery. The NBA draft can;t get here fast enough so we can end all the drama and speculation.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Tim Duncan (rest) will not play Friday against Denver.
The Spurs will take advantage of the holiday and give Duncan an extra day of rest and get ready for Saturday against the Hawks. The Spurs could go with LaMarcus Aldridge at center for Friday and use David West at power forward or they could just give Boris Diaw the start. Either way, those are the three players likely to see the extra work in Duncan's absence. Analysis: Howard Bender
