CHICAGO (AP) — Devin Booker is finally headed to his first NBA All-Star Game. The Phoenix guard was tabbed Thursday as the player who will replace injured Portland guard Damian Lillard in the game and Saturday's 3-point contest.
Booker was chosen by Commissioner Adam Silver, who makes the final call on injury replacements to the All-Star rosters. By NBA rule, the replacement player has to come from the same conference as the injured player.
