Zack Wheeler told reporters at Citi Field on Wednesday during a coat drive that he's amenable to whatever role the Mets select. Wheeler is due to resume throwing a baseball later this month. He has missed two full seasons due to setbacks in his return from Tommy John surgery. "I've started my whole life, and obviously I'd like to do that," Wheeler said, according to Newsday. "But they're looking out for me, innings-wise and stuff like that. I've been out for two years, so … whatever's best for my health is what's fine with me and the plan going forward." The Mets have floated having Wheeler potentially start 2017 in the bullpen to shave innings before entering the rotation later in the year.

Phil Jackson has high praise for Kristaps Porzingis: "He's a unicorn. He's just a standout guy," Jackson said in an interview with CBS Sports Network. "You don't see people like this playing basketball with the grace, speed and athleticism that he has. And the ability to shoot the ball as well as he can shoot the ball."

DeAndre Liggins, coming off 5 points and 5 rebounds against Toronto, will start in the injured J.R. Smith's place against the New York Knicks on Wednesday. Tyronn Lue explained: "Just like the energy he brings. I think high energy from a guy, it's contagious. Guys tend to play harder, seeing him flying around the floor, picking up full court, that's the juice and spunk we need." It will be just the second start of the 28-year-old's career and his 69th game played.
