Devin Booker will replace Damian Lillard at All-Star weekend.
Booker deserved to make the game on his own merit but the rosters are only so big, and NBA fans will at least get to see the bright young star at the event after all, even if it's at the expense of Lillard. Booker will be participating in the game as well as the 3-point shootout on Saturday. He's a second-round value this season and has taken another big step forward by shooting 49.6% from the field. For the first three years of his career, Booker was never above 43.2% but has jumped about three percentage points in each of the past two seasons.
