Russell Westbrook Selected as Reserve for 2019 All-Star Game

Nikola Jokic set to be selected for first All-Star game

Dallas Mavericks' Dirk Nowitzki has been added to the 2019 All-Star Game by the National Basketball Association commissioner as a "special roster addition".

According to, Nowitzki and Wade will be selected in a new third round of the 2019 NBA All-Star Draft, adding a 13th player to each active All-Star Game roster.

Dallas Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki and Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade were named Friday as special roster additions for the 68th NBA All-Star Game by league commissioner Adam Silver.

This follows on from last week's announcement of the 2019 All-Star starters, which featured Kemba Walker, Kyrie Irving, Kawhi Leonard, Giannis Antetokounmpo, and Joel Embiid from the East, and Stephen Curry, James Harden, Kevin Durant, Paul George, and LeBron James from the West.

Andrew Bogut was considered Australia's first realistic chance when he became the country's inaugural No.1 overall draft pick in 2005, but injuries cruelled his progression and his highest individual honour was a place in the season-ending All-NBA third team in 2010, while he also won a title with Golden State in 2015.

According to Guglielmi, Smollett later went to Northwestern Memorial Hospital after police advised him to do so. Trump did not comment on claims the attackers were supporters of his and did not offer Smollett any apology.

Dwyane Wade is going to the NBA All-Star Game after all.

Wade has made it clear throughout the process he did not want to take an All-Star spot from a player who deserved it just because it's the final season of his Hall of Fame career, and he didn't.

Jokić, 23, has led Denver to their best record in franchise history through 50 games while averaging 20.1 points, 10.4 rebounds, 7.7 assists and 1.43 steals in 31.4 minutes per game. Nowitzki is heading to the All-Star Game for the 14th time, and has yet to officially say if his 21st season with the Mavericks will be the final one of his career.
