Jose Altuve was hit on his left forearm in Monday's win for the Astros and left the game, but X-rays were negative and he has only a contusion.

Kristaps Porzingis was asked if he drew optimism from the idea that so many Eastern Conference stars, including Anthony, have defected to the Western Conference this season via free agency or trade. "I think that's kind of a losing mentality if you're hoping for the conference to get worse so you can make the playoffs," he said.

Kristaps Porzingis reflects on his time with Carmelo Anthony: "He was a great leader for us. He was a great mentor for me. He was like a big brother to me.

He was always the No. 1 focal point for the other team," he said. "I realize that. And now I'm going to be one of those guys that other teams are going to focus on."
