Phoenix Suns guard Devin Booker will take the place of injured Portland Trail Blazers star Damian Lillard in the NBA All-Star Game and the three-point contest, league commissioner Adam Silver said on Thursday (Friday in Manila).
Booker was among the more notable snubs when the National Basketball Association announced its initial All-Star reserves last month.

Knicks' guard RJ Barrett was the team's biggest contributor with 27 points (11-17 FGs), 6 rebounds, 5 assists, and 3 steals. The students said they felt similarly. "It was insane being able to stand next to him, talk to him", Young said afterward.
Booker will also replace Lillard in the 3-point contest that will take place on Saturday, February 15. Fans, players and media voting is used in the formula to choose the All-Star starters; the task of choosing the reserves is exclusively on the coaches.
Memphis Grizzlies rookie point guard Ja Morant has had a sensational season thus far, but not quite enough to earn All Star honors over a guy like Devin Booker. The reserves are strictly picked by head coaches around the National Basketball Association. He's been ranked 10th in the National Basketball Association in point average while shooting 49.6 from the field and 92.0% from the free-throw line, both career-highs.

The Suns have a losing record at 22-33, but they've been a completely different team with Booker in the lineup. Booker has been having his best season as a pro, putting up 26.4 points on 49.6% shooting. Shortly after the news broke, Morant shared his thoughts of the All Star replacement on twitter, writing, "I will prepare, & one day my time will come" along with a sleeping emoji and an hourglass. He is the top All-Star snub this year and I just couldn't believe that he was after his first NBA All-Star game appearance. "I will still be there and be part of that, but I will not play".
