CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — The Latest on NBA All-Star Weekend (all times local):

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Three Thunder players were injured and Oklahoma City still left Oracle Arena with a lopsided win against the ailing, slumping two-time defending NBA champions.
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Thunder rookie Hamidou Diallo avoided a serious leg injury after a hard fall in the fourth quarter of Oklahoma City's 123-95 win at Golden State on Wednesday night.
He was carted off on a stretcher with 7:17 left after crashing to the floor and colliding with Warriors forward Jonas Jerebko. The team said Warriors team physicians ruled out a severe injury based on X-rays from the left knee and below. Diallo was to be re-examined Thursday in Oklahoma.
Last season: 26-11, won the SEC Tournament title and reached NCAA Sweet 16.
Coach: John Calipari.
Who's gone: Forward Kevin Knox and guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander became NBA lottery selections. Guard Hamidou Diallo and forward Jarred Vanderbilt were also drafted.

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — A night in which No. 16 Kentucky seemingly couldn't make any shots didn't stop the Wildcats from trying, especially with the lead within reach against Georgia.

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — Needing every point possible to compete with high-scoring Virginia Tech, No. 8 Kentucky got offense from all over the court off numerous opportunities created by a disruptive defense.

NEW YORK (AP) — During a recent practice, Kentucky coach John Calipari noticed freshman guard Hamidou Diallo was pulling his hand back after launching jump shots.

Based on what transpired at Madison Square Garden on Saturday, coach knows best.
LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — Kentucky's upside for its youthful roster after an awful first half was having another 20 minutes to make up for it.
The Wildcats actually took control in less than 5 minutes, surprisingly with a zone defense that especially paid off for Hamidou Diallo.
Diallo scored 13 second-half points, most of them during an 18-0 run, and No. 5 Kentucky shot 59 percent after halftime to rally past Utah Valley 73-63 on Friday night in the opener for both schools.
Last season: 32-6, reached NCAA Tournament South Region final.
Coach: John Calipari.

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — Kentucky's roster always seems dominated by freshmen. This year will be no different.
The Wildcats will have eight new faces this fall. It has been a way of life in Lexington with the steady flow of one-and-dones under coach John Calipari.
But sophomores Wenyen Gabriel and Sacha Killeya-Jones, along with redshirt freshman Hamidou Diallo have eagerly embraced new leadership roles — though they're entering just their second seasons themselves.
