Being a sub-.500 road team is not sitting well with new Bucks coach Doc Rivers, who is emphasizing defense and is asking for more of it from starter Malik Beasley and reserve Bobby Portis. Beasley is a prolific 3-point shooter who also gets the defensive assignment on the opposing team’s best perimeter player, and Portis is a fiery personality whose emotions have gotten the better of him in the past, which is one of the reasons why he has never found a long-term home in the NBA. Tonight, Portis will need to focus on Jaren Jackson Jr., and Beasley will have to go up against one of the Grizzlies G-League callups who will be making his first national television appearance since college. Memphis will likely try to rely on veteran Luke Kennard for 3-point shooting, which has been his calling card throughout his journeyman NBA career.

Bucks vs. Grizzlies Injury Report

Milwaukee All-Star forward Giannis Antetokounmpo is listed as probable with right knee tendinitis and guard Damian Lillard is probable with ankle inflammation, and it is anyone’s guess as to whether Rivers will err on the side of caution and rest both against a weak opponent. Khris Middleton remains out with a sprained left ankle, so there could be a strong B-team component for the Bucks. Memphis is again without backcourt starters Ja Morant, Desmond Bane and Marcus Smart, but Derrick Rose and Ziaire Williams have returned from injury absences and are available. Grizzlies forward Jaren Jackson Jr. is listed as doubtful with a quad injury.

Golden State is coming off a painful loss last night at home when they allowed the Los Angeles Clippers to score 44 points in the fourth quarter and blew a 10-point lead in that final frame to drop to .500. This leaves them in 10th place in the Western Conference as their run as one of the NBA’s top teams for the past decade appears to be coming to an end. With the news out that the Warriors made inquiries about trading for LeBron James, there is an interesting storyline that will be the talk of All-Star weekend, but a more salient concern for Golden State is the shooting of Klay Thompson, who was 1-for-9 from 3-point range last night as his season-long shooting slump continued. Utah is coming off a 16-point loss to the Lakers in which they allowed 136 points despite not having to face LeBron James.

Warriors vs. Jazz Injury Report

Neither team is reporting any injuries to its regulars.

Minnesota is finishing up a five-game road trip that includes a peculiarity: They are playing consecutive road games against Portland, meaning they have been ensconced in the state of Oregon since early Tuesday when they arrived from Los Angeles for the second half of a back-to-back. They went out and defeated the Blazers 121-109 behind 41 points from Anthony Edwards. DeAndre Ayton was the lone bright spot for Portland on Tuesday night with 21 points and 16 rebounds, while Anfernee Simons also scored 20 but shot 6-for-19. The Blazers have lost five straight games.

Timberwolves vs. Trail Blazers Injury Report

Edwards is listed as questionable with right knee soreness, while the Blazers will be without Malcolm Brogdon (knee), Shaedon Sharpe (abdominal surgery) and Robert Williams (knee surgery), while Scoot Henderson is probable with a sprained left foot.
