Kevin Durant’s left hamstring strain will keep him out of the 2021 NBA All-Star Game this March according to reports by ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski and he will be replaced by Indiana Pacers star Domantas Sabonis.

Sabonis will now join five more European stars that have already sealed their spot, namely current MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo, Luka Doncic, Nikola Jokic, Rudy Gobert and Nikola Vucevic.

24-year-old Sabonis will return for his second All-Star experience after the 2019-20 season, while this season his numbers went up to 21.5 points, 11.7 rebounds and 5.7 assists per game.
