Kemba Walker makes All-Star Game

It has also been announced that Drummond will take Porzingis' place in the All-Star Skills Challenge.

The NBA All-Star Game will be played February 18 in Los Angeles.

Porzingis was the fourth player drafted by captain LeBron James who had to be replaced because of injury, joining DeMarcus Cousins, Kevin Love and John Wall.

The 6-1 Walker has scored at least 40 points in a game three times this season, one of eight National Basketball Association players to do so.

It's been a great start to 2018 for Charlotte center Dwight Howard, who since January 1, is averaging 16.3 points, 13.3 rebounds and 2.6 blocks (third in the NBA) over 18 appearances.

Walker became Charlotte's all-time leader in 3-point field goals on February 4, surpassing the previous high of 929 by Dell Curry. Either way, the Hornets' guard is as talented a player there is and is deserving of the nod.

The NBA named Walker as an injury replacement for Knicks center Kristaps Porzingis on Thursday. Walker said last month - after Cleveland Cavaliers big man Kevin Love suffered a broken hand - that he would love to be named an All-Star replacement. Porzingis and Walker both play for Eastern Conference teams.
