Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid and New York Knicks forward Julius Randle were recently picked to represent the Eastern Conference in the 2024 NBA All-Star Game. Unfortunately, both stars will be forced to miss this year’s festivities due to injuries. As a result, the NBA has named Atlanta Hawks guard Trae Young and Toronto Raptors forward Scottie Barnes the two injury replacements for the All-Star Game.

For Young, this will be his third All-Star appearance. Barnes will be making the first All-Star appearance of his career after being named as a replacement.

More details to come shortly.
