John Wall will be on the court with the rest of the NBA's top talent at the All-Star Game next weekend.
The Washington Wizards point guard was voted to be a reserve on the Eastern Conference's all-star team, the league announced Thursday, Jan. 28.
This will be 25-year-old Wall's third-consecutive appearance in the game since he was drafted to the Wizards. Wall is averaging 19.9 points this season, and the Wizards are 11th in the Eastern Conference at 21-26.
NBA All-Star weekend will be from Feb. 12-14, with the exhibition game on Feb. 14.
Wall joins Jimmy Butler, Isaiah Thomas, DeMar DeRozan, Chris Bosh, Paul Millsap and Andre Drummond on the reserve squad for the East. LeBron James, Paul George, Dwyane Wade, Carmelo Anthony and Kyle Lowry will start for the East.
Wall had his second highest scoring game on Wednesday night in a loss against the Golden State Warriors, where he scored 41 points, second only to his 47-point performance against the Memphis Grizzlies in 2013.
