Anthony Davis named to NBA's All-Star Game reserves

NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

For the fourth time in four years, Anthony Davis is off to the NBA's All-Star Game.

This season, just like his second, he has been named a reserve for the Western Conference squad. He participated in the rookie-sophomore game in his first year and was voted a starter by the fans last season, although he did not play due to injury.

Davis is averaging 22.9 points, 10.2 rebounds and 2.4 blocks per game. The Pelicans are a disappointing 16-28 heading into Thursday's contest against the Kings, which Davis will miss as he recovers from a concussion suffered Monday against the Rockets.

Starting for the Western Conference All-Star team are Stephen Curry, Russell Westbrook, Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant and Kawhi Leonard. Their reserves are Chris Paul, James Harden, Draymond Green, DeMarcus Cousins, Anthony Davis, LaMarcus Aldridge and Klay Thompson.

The Eastern Conference All-Star Team includes Kyle Lowry, Dwayne Wade, LeBron James, Paul George and Carmelo Anthony as starters. Their reserves are John Wall, Jimmy Butler, Andre Drummond, Paul Millsap, Chris Bosh, Isaiah Thomas and Demar Derozan.
