* Kobe Bryant is expected to miss the rest of the season with a
torn rotator cuff. The NBA will choose a new reserve, and West coaches leaded by Steve Kerr will pick a new
starter, presumably James Harden.
There are 4 players who will make their debut as an All-Star in NY: Kyle Lowry, Jimmy Butler, Jeff Teague and Klay Thompson.
Marc and Pau Gasol just become the first brothers as NBA All-Star starters and also the first time a player named Gasol starts an NBA All-Star Game. Dick & Tom Van Arsdale played in 1971 and 1972 NBA All-Star Games.
For the first time, the NBA has extended the All-Star break a few days. Cleveland at Chicago on Thursday Feb. 12 will be the last game before the All-Star Weekend, and the regular season will restart with a TNT doubleheader on Feb. 19. All the NBA teams will have at least an eight days break, three days more than the last All-Star breaks.
