Saturday, 3 p.m., NBA TV: Terrence Jones will play in the NBA Development League All-Star game.
Saturday, 8:30 p.m., TNT: Brandon Knight will play in the Skills Challenge, in which competitors race through an obstacle course testing their dribbling, agility and passing. Then, Eric Bledsoe will participate in the Dunk Contest. He will be just the third Wildcat to be in the event and the first since 1991.
Rajon Rondo was selected to play in Sunday's All-Star game, but he will not play due to a previous injury.
