Jared Sullinger won’t be part of the Rising Stars Challenge at All-Star Weekend in Houston that features the league’s top first- and second-year players. He was left out of the pool of 18 players (nine rookies, nine second-year players) that will make up the two teams. Charles Barkley and Shaquille O’Neal will pick the teams for the Feb. 15 game.
