Utah Jazz point guard Mike Conley will take part in the NBA All-Star Game in place of Phoenix Suns defender Devin Booker, according to the NBA website.
Booker won’t play due to knee problems. Previously, he was included in the NBA All-Star roster in place of injured Los Angeles Lakers forward Anthony Davis.
Conley will play for Kevin Durant’s squad against LeBron James’s squad. The game will take place on March 7 in Atlanta. The Utah point guard will also replace Booker in the three-point shooting competition.
Conley, who will play for the first time in an NBA All-Star Game, is averaging 16.1 points and 5.7 assists per game this season.
