NBA All-Star Weekend 2012: Markieff Morris, Derrick Williams Selected For BBVA Rising Stars Challenge

The All-Star Game is probably not going to feature any Phoenix Suns this year, but there will still be representatives throughout All-Star Weekend. One such representative will be rookie Markieff Morris as one of the members of the BBVA Rising Stars Chellenge. Morris has been doing well the past few games, averaging about seven points, five rebounds and one assist the past 25 games, as he's come on strong.

Derrick Williams was also a shoo-in to be a participant as a rookie. The Minnesota Timberwolves power forward who exploded onto the scene at Arizona last year, as he's been averaging just over seven points and around four rebounds per game. Both should figure a bit more prominently in a contest known for its high-scoring.
