Joel Embiid said his ankle is feeling better and that he's aiming to be the MVP during Sunday's All-Star Game.

"On Sunday, I expect to go harder," Embiid said after playing just eight minutes in the Rising Stars game Friday. "I’m going for that MVP. Guys better make sure they find me because I’m looking to have a good game." He admitted that his ankle "didn't feel so good" on Friday, but he's doing better and his fantasy owners and 76ers fans are just hoping he comes out of this game healthy.

Joakim Noah reportedly had a physical altercation with Knicks head coach Jeff Hornacek.

This was quite a while ago, but it's clear that Noah's days in New York are numbered. While no punches were thrown, Hornacek reportedly shoved Noah first before the two had to be separated. If Noah does part ways with the Knicks, the Wolves would be the most likely destination. "I know [Noah] wants to play. He wants to help win. He’s a great dude," Jimmy Butler said of his former teammate. "I talked to him a little bit, not a lot. All in all, I want him to be happy."

Donovan Mitchell won the Verizon Slam Dunk Contest.

He broke out the Vince Carter jersey for the "it's over" 360 dunk to clinch it. Dennis Smith Jr. still had the best dunk of the night with his wild through-the-leg jam, but the judges weren't fans of his first dunk. Mitchell continues to shine with his in-game dunks as one of the best values in fantasy hoops.

Devin Booker won the JBL 3-Point Contest.

Massive props to Booker for not only saying he would win, but also calling that Klay Thompson would finish second when he was on the Suns broadcast last week. He'll have the rest of the break to get his hip injury right and he has said he doesn't want to rest down the stretch. Booker's fantasy owners can expect a strong finish.

Spencer Dinwiddie won the Taco Bell Skills Challenge.

He beat Jamal Murray in the semifinal and Lauri Markkanen in the final to earn the trophy. Dinwiddie has been a serious candidate for Most Improved Player and arguably the best pickup in fantasy hoops. He's a great story and a Los Angeles kid, but Dinwiddie said the best part of his win was helping someone get a scholarship.

Paul George hinted he knows what he'll do this offseason.

To clarify, George was asked if he knows what he'll do this summer. "I don't," he said. "I know what I feel is best." So if he knows it, does he have an idea of his plan? Russell Westbrook also suggested that he thinks PG is going to stay, so this will obviously be a huge story this summer.

Channing Frye said he had an appendectomy.

"I’m pretty sure that i got my appendix removed I’ll be able to dunk at least [three times] a month now," Frye said on Twitter. This probably explains why Frye was out for personal reasons on Thursday and now he’ll be targeting an early March return.

Vince Carter is expected to spend the rest of the season in Sacramento, as the Kings reportedly prefer not to buy him out.

There were rumors in Toronto that Carter and the Raptors might reunite if VC was bought out and became a free agent this month. However, it appears the Kings want to hold onto their vet. Yet, it sounds like there is an outside chance that the 41-year old Carter finishes his career where it began by signing a one year deal with the Raps over the summer.
