Bulls: Bobby Por­tis’ run-in with Kevin Du­rant on Fri­day left the Chicago for­ward with a sprained el­bow and a feel­ing that he is be­ing treated dif­fer­ently by the of­fi­cials be­cause of his rep­u­ta­tion formed af­ter a 2017 prac­tice al­ter­ca­tion with Nikola Mirotic. Por­tis and Du­rant got tan­gled up on a screen, and Por­tis be­lieves the War­riors star grabbed his right arm and pur­posely pulled it down.

“Yeah, that wasn’t in­ad­ver­tent,” he said. “If I would have done that, I would have got­ten a foul called on me. I guess it’s just who you’re play­ing against. Ev­ery­thing is of­fi­ci­ated dif­fer­ent to­ward who­ever it is, but if you look back at the video at the time, it was ob­vi­ous.” Mav­er­icks: J.J. Barea won’t play again this sea­son and will un­dergo surgery Mon­day af­ter rup­tur­ing his right Achilles ten­don Fri­day in Dal­las’ vic­tory against Min­nesota. The 13-year vet­eran av­er­aged 10.9 points and 5.6 as­sists per game as the Mavs’ sixth man.

Griz­zlies: For­ward Kyle An­der­son is ex­pected to miss at least two to four weeks be­cause of a Grade 2 left an­kle sprain suf­fered Satur­day against Mi­ami. An­der­son is av­er­ag­ing 7.9 points and 5.8 re­bounds this sea­son.
