Kobe Bryant, Blake Griffin and Anthony Davis have all been ruled out for the Western Conference All-Star team this weekend; three players who were voted in as starters.

DeMarcus Cousins, Damian Lillard and Dirk Nowitzki — who will be making his 13th appearance — have been chosen by NBA commissioner Adam Silver to fill their spots on the roster. With the addition of Lillard, there are now eight total point guards playing in this year’s game.

Steve Kerr, who will be the head coach for the Western Conference All-Stars, is responsible for choosing the replacement starters on the team. He decided to go with James Harden and Klay Thompson in the starting five — giving the West a three-guard lineup.

It has not been announced who will be a starter in Davis’ spot as of yet.

Dwyane Wade will not participate in the All-Star Game on the Eastern Conference side, while Kyle Korver will take his spot. That gives the Atlanta Hawks four players on the East roster — the first team to have that many players on an All-Star roster since the Boston Celtics in 2011.

It was rumored that New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony would miss the game, but he is expected to play — barring a setback.

There’s also a chance that Oklahoma City Thunder star Kevin Durant may miss Sunday’s game, which would open up yet another spot on the Western Conference roster.

So now that we’ve cleared that up, here’s an updated look at the two rosters (for now) come Sunday.
