Kevin Durant will not be available for the All-Star game, which will take place on March 7 in Atlanta. As a result, Domantas Sabonis will replace the Nets’ superstar on the Eastern Conference All-Star team, per Adrian Wojnarowski.
Sabonis has a great season with the Indiana Pacers so far, averaging 21.5 points. 11.7 rebounds and 5.7 assists per game.
The Pacers are fourth in the East with a 15-15 record, with Sabonis being the leading star of the team alongside Malcolm Brogdon.
Durant missed the last seven games of the Nets with a hamstring issue. He is expected to continue his rehab during the All-Star break.
