This leaves Kyrie Irving as the only Celtic named to the All-Star Team.

With the season-ending injury to Victor Oladipo, Commissioner Adam Silver will name a replacement for the Pacers' guard. Celtics' forward Jayson Tatum, who is averaging 16.3 points per game on 45 percent shooting from the floor, is expected to be in the running for Oladipo's spot.

In the Western Conference some notable snubs include the Clippers' Tobias Harris, Utah's Rudy Gobert and the Spurs' Demar Derozen:
