Lillard to miss All-Star week

Phoenix Suns guard Devin Booker has been named by NBA Commissioner Adam Silver to replace injured Portland Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard on Team LeBron in the 2020 NBA All-Star Game and the 2020 3-Point Contest.

Booker has earned his first NBA All-Star selection in his fifth season, becoming the Suns’ first All-Star since Steve Nash in the 2011-12 season.  The 6-5 guard is averaging 26.4 points (10th in NBA), 6.3 assists and 4.2 rebounds while posting career highs in field goal percentage (49.6) and free throw percentage (92.0). 

According to NBA rules, when a player selected to the All-Star Game is unable to participate, the Commissioner shall choose a replacement from the same conference as the player who is being replaced.  Booker and Lillard both play for Western Conference teams.
