Booker will replace injured Portland Trail Blazers point guard Damian Lillard in both Saturday’s three-point contest and Sunday’s All-Star Game, the league announced on Thursday morning. NBA commissioner Adam Silver had the final say on which Western Conference player replaced Lillard. In the past, Silver has generally selected the reserve with the next-highest vote total from coaches.

Booker will fill Lillard’s spot on Team LeBron. That he was not already on the roster came as a surprise. The Suns star’s 26.4 points per game currently rank 10th in the NBA, and he is doing so on 50/36/92 shooting splits. Booker is also averaging 6.3 assists and 4.2 rebounds a night.
