TODAY'S THOUGHT

Many avoid holiness to pursue happiness, not knowing that the two are one. The best way to pursue your highest, deepest happiness is to pursue holiness with all your heart.

    MINNESOTA WILD-KOIVU

     ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - Minnesota Wild captain Mikko Koivu will miss the rest of the season after tearing two ligaments in his right knee.
 
     Koivu is expected to have surgery Friday, the Wild announced today. He was hurt a day earlier while colliding with Sabres forward Tage Thompson in the first period of Minnesota's 5-4 shootout loss at Buffalo.
 
     Koivu has spent his 14 NHL seasons with Minnesota, and is the franchise leader in numerous categories.
 
     The 35-year-old Finn had eight goals and 21 assists in 48 games this season. He also leads the team with 488 faceoff wins and is tied for second with 12 power-play points.
 
     The injury comes with the Wild going 0-1-2 in their past three games and preparing to host Edmonton on Thursday night. Minnesota is seventh in the Western Conference with a 26-22-5 record and 57 points, three ahead of eighth-place Vancouver.

     NBA-NEWS
 
     UNDATED (AP) - A person familiar with the situation says the NBA-leading Milwaukee Bucks have agreed to trade center Thon Maker to the Detroit Pistons for forward Stanley Johnson.
 
     The person spoke to The Associated Press today on condition of anonymity because the deal had not been publicly announced. Johnson and Maker are both recent lottery picks who have struggled to make a consistent impact. Now, they'll both have a change of scenery.
 
     The Pistons took Johnson with the No. 8 pick in the 2015 draft. He's averaged 7.5 points a game this season, playing mostly in a backup role, but he's just a 29-percent shooter from 3-point range for his career.
 
     The 7-foot-1 Maker was the 10th pick in 2016. He started 34 games as a rookie in 2016-17 but has mostly come off the bench since then.
 
     In other NBA news:
 
     - A person with knowledge of the negotiations says the Phoenix Suns have agreed with the Miami Heat on a deal that will include Tyler Johnson. Johnson is in the third year of a four-year deal, one that is paying him about $19 million this season and again next season. He's averaged 10.8 points in 44 games for Miami this season. The person says the teams are still working out other parts of the deal, with the hope it is completed Wednesday. -
 
     - The Philadelphia 76ers have agreed to acquire Los Angeles Clippers forward Tobias Harris as the centerpiece of a six-player, four-draft pick trade they hope can put them over the top in the East.  That's according to a person familiar with the trade, who says the Sixers also acquired center Boban Marjanovic and forward Mike Scott as part of the deal. The Sixers sent rookie guard Landry Shamet and four draft picks to the Clippers, and traded forwards Wilson Chandler and Mike Muscala to them.
 
     - The Los Angeles Lakers have acquired Reggie Bullock from the Detroit Pistons for rookie guard Svi Mykhailiuk. Bullock is a sixth-year pro who began his career across town with the Clippers. He is averaging 12.1 points per game and hitting 38.8 percent of his 3-point attempts this season for the Pistons. His outside shooting will fill a major need for the struggling Lakers, who are the NBA's second-worst 3-point shooting team at 33.4 percent. Mykhailiuk was a second-round pick by the Lakers out of Kansas. The Ukrainian shooter averaged 3.2 points in 39 games.
 
     - The New York Knicks are worth $4 billion, making them the most valuable NBA team for the fourth straight year, according to Forbes. That's despite having the worst record among the league's 30 teams. In its annual rankings, Forbes said the Knicks' value increased 11 percent from last year because of a $1 billion renovation of Madison Square Garden, completed in 2013, that has produced a series of new revenue streams. Forbes says the Los Angeles Lakers remain in second place with a value of $3.7 billion, up 12 percent. Rounding out the top five are the Golden State Warriors ($3.5 billion), Chicago Bulls ($2.9 billion) and Boston Celtics ($2.8 billion).

     NBA-ALL-STAR COMPETITIONS
 
     CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Devin Booker of the Phoenix Suns will look to defend his 3-point contest title at the NBA All-Star game against brothers Stephen and Seth Curry on Feb. 16 in Charlotte, North Carolina.
 
     Charlotte's Kemba Walker, Dallas' Dirk Nowitzki, Portland's Damian Lillard, Milwaukee's Khris Middleton, Toronto's Danny Green, Brooklyn's Joe Harris and Sacramento's Buddy Hield round out the 10-player field.
 
     The dunk contest features Charlotte's Miles Bridges, Oklahoma City's Hamidou Diallo, Atlanta's John Collins and New York Knicks' Dennis Smith Jr.
 
     The skill challenge includes first-time NBA All-Stars Nikola Jokic of the Nuggets and Nikola Vucevic of the Magic and Luka Doncic of the Mavericks. Atlanta's Trae Young, Memphis' Mike Conley, Sacramento's De'Aaron Fox, Los Angele Lakers' Kyle Kuzma and Boston's Jayson Tatum will also compete.

     NHL-DEVILS-PREDATORS TRADE
 
     NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The Nashville Predators have made a pair of trades, adding Brian Boyle from the New Jersey Devils and bringing back forward Cody McLeod from the New York Rangers.
 
     The Predators swapped a second-round pick in June's NHL draft for Boyle and will send the Rangers a seventh-round pick in the 2020 NHL draft for McLeod in Wednesday's trades.
 
     McLeod played 54 games for Nashville over the 2016-17 and 2017-18 seasons, and he scored the game-winning goal in Game 3 of the Predators' second-round series with St. Louis in reaching the 2017 Stanley Cup Final. McLeod has a goal and 60 penalty minutes in 31 games this season with the Rangers, and the 6-foot-2, 204-pound left wing is in his 12th NHL season.
 
     General manager David Poile also said Wednesday that forward Zac Rinaldo will have season-ending surgery for an injured shoulder.
 
     In other NHL news:
 
     - Pittsburgh Penguins goaltender Matt Murray has missed practice while being evaluated for an upper-body injury. Murray played in a 4-0 loss to Carolina on Tuesday night. He will travel with the team when it heads to Florida to start a three-game road trip on Thursday night against the Panthers. Pittsburgh coach Mike Sullivan described Murray as "day to day." He already has missed time this season because of a concussion and an unspecified lower-body injury.
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     NFL-FALCONS-BRYANT
 
     ATLANTA (AP) - The Atlanta Falcons are releasing kicker Matt Bryant, ending the 10-year run of the team's all-time leading scorer.
 
     The decision Wednesday to not renew the team's option on the 43-year-old Bryant comes despite another strong season in 2018, when he made 20 of 21 field goals and 33 of 35 extra points. His only missed field goal was from 53 yards at Green Bay.
 
     Bryant missed three games with a hamstring injury.
 
     Bryant said on his Twitter account he plans to extend his career.
 
     Giorgio Tavecchio, who was signed when Bryant was injured, was kept on the active roster the remainder of the season and could be the starter in 2019. The move comes one day after the Falcons cut another veteran, cornerback Robert Alford.

     MLB NEWS
 
     UNDATED (AP) - Reliever Ryan Tepera has gone to salary arbitration with the Toronto Blue Jays.
 
     Tepera asked for $1.8 million during Wednesday's hearing and the team argued for $1,525,000. A decision by arbitrators Mark Burstein, Howard Edelman and Edna Francis is expected Thursday.
 
     Tepera, a 31-year-old right-hander, was 5-5 with a 3.62 ERA last year. He was on the disabled list between June 27 and July 15 with right elbow inflammation. He earned $574,700 last year and was eligible for arbitration for the first time.
 
     Players lead 3-1 in decisions this year. Seven players remain scheduled for hearings through Feb. 15.
 
     Elsewhere around the league:
 
     - The Colorado Rockies announced that infielder Mark Reynolds is among the team's non-roster invitees to major league spring training. The 35-year-old Reynolds spent 2016 and '17 with the Rockies before joining Washington last season.
 
     In other baseball news:
 
     - Utility infielder Nick Franklin has agreed to a minor league contract with the Pittsburgh Pirates and will attend big league spring training. The 27-year-old Franklin is a career .214 hitter, appearing in 301 games for four different teams since making his debut in 2013 with Seattle.
 
     - Major League Baseball says its independent investigation found no credible evidence to support claims of disparaging comments and discriminatory treatment by members of the Seattle Mariners front office. Lorena Martin,  the club's director of high performance for one season, was fired following the 2018 season. She alleged that the Mariners' general manager, director of player development and manager had made disparaging comments against Latino players
