Salt Lake City will host the 2023 NBA All-Star Game on Sunday, February 19. This year’s annual exhibition, featuring the best stars in the NBA, will mark the 30th anniversary since the first All-Star Weekend last took place in Salt Lake City back in 1993. Last week the starters for each conference were announced on TNT, and tonight the full roster of All-Stars was unveiled.
Below are the All-Star reserves from the Western Conference.
Grizzlies G Ja Morant
Kings F Domantas Sabonis
Thunder G Shai Gilgeous-Alexander
Clippers F Paul George
Trail Blazers G Damian Lillard
Jazz F Lauri Markkanen
Grizzlies F Jaren Jackson Jr.
Notable big-name absences include the Suns’ Devin Booker, Clippers’ Kawhi Leonard, and the Lakers’ Anthony Davis. Many had assumed that Sacramento could send two players to the All-Star Game, and yet De’Aaron Fox is among the notable snubs from the West reserves.
Markkanen, Jackson Jr, and Gilgeous-Alexander will all make their debut as first-time All-Star selections.
