Kristaps Porzingis says he gets advice from Phil Jackson nearly every day. The rookie says Jackson, the Knicks president, "lets Coach [Derek] Fisher do all the work, but then he comes up to guys and tells little details about the offense, something maybe that all the other coaches didn't see. Phil's always there and he sees other things, and he's very helpful for me... It's the best place for me to be right now, alongside with him."

Dudley to make first start for Wizards

Jared Dudley, who scored a game-high 19 points for the team in Friday's loss to the Celtics, will start in the place of Kris Humphries (who has been scoreless in three of his last four starts). Washington hosts Toronto tonight.

Nets third-string PG Donald Sloan (illness) is inactive tonight. F/C Willie Reed (torn UCL right thumb) is active, though he just did some non-contact things in Friday's practice, and it would be a surprise if he plays. Reed has yet to play this season due to his injury.

Warriors' Barnes doubtful vs. Kings

Harrison Barnes is doubtful to play tonight as Golden State looks to improve to 18-0 to start the season. Barnes (13.4 points per game) sprained his ankle in the Warriors' 135-116 win over the Suns on Friday.


Anthony Davis probable for Pelicans

Davis had to leave Friday's game vs. the Clippers with a knee injury, but he's probable tonight against Utah. He's averaging 23.5 points and 10 rebounds per game this season.

Anthony Davis has knee contusion

The Lakers announce that due to personal reasons guard Lou Williams is not with the team and thus will not play in tonight's game against the Portland Trail Blazers. His grandfather passed away, the team says.

Lakers coach Byron Scott on "noise" from fans: "I block it out. The one thing I've always said, and a great old coach told me this a long time ago, 'If you start listening to the fans, you're going to be sitting with them next.' So I don't pay a whole lot of attention to fans because fans are fans. Fans aren't at practice every day. They don't know the preparation. They don't know what goes into it. They just see the end product. So they have no idea. They all have their own opinions. But, yeah, I don't put a lot of stock into it."
