Commissioner Adam Silver chooses injury replacements from the same conference as the injured All Star.

The door may have swung back open on the Miami Heat's hopes of landing a player in the February 18 NBA All-Star Game, with Washington Wizards guard John Wall sidelined with a knee issue.

Wall is to miss 6-8 weeks with an injury now, making him the second player since DeMarcus Cousins of the New Orleans Pelicans to be removed from LeBron James' All-Star team due to injury.

Although the news is certainly bad for Wall and the Wizards, one lucky player who fell just short of an All-Star bid will now receive the honor.

Prior to going without an All-Star last season, the Heat had a representative at the event every year since 2005.

This season, only three players have stats that reach those per game plateaus: Simmons, Cleveland's LeBron James and Oklahoma City's Russell Westbrook.

News broke early Tuesday that Wall could miss up to two months because of a knee procedure, opening up an Eastern Conference All-Star Spot.

Simmons, who would become the first Australian selected as an All-Star, has averaged 16.6 points, 7.9 rebounds and 7.3 assists.

When Detroit Pistons center Andre Drummond found out he was not selected as an NBA All-Star, he took to social media to express his frustration.

Draymond Green said Celtics guard Jaylen Brown should have been the replacement.

The last time Sixers point guard Ben Simmons was snubbed, he only went out and had one of the best single-game rookie performances in National Basketball Association history.

Drummond is having a fine season for a Pistons team that is now poised to make a run to the playoffs after acquiring Blake Griffin in a trade yesterday from the L.A. Clippers.
