With the news that Wizards point guard John Wall would be out for the next six weeks with a knee injury, the National Basketball Association needed to choose a replacement for him from the Eastern Conference. His team now sits in the fourth spot in the Eastern Conference at 29-21.

For a few hours Tuesday, the possibility of a Heat All-Star became real again.

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.

Andre Drummond held out Ben Simmons to be named as John Wall's replacement for the All-Star game in Los Angeles game next month.

George was next highest in the voting of Western Conference coaches for All-Star reserves, but such an appointment does not have to be made on that basis, nor does a replacement have to be position specific. James and Westbrook are also the only two players to do that for a full season at all in the last 10 years.

But hey, who knows, maybe Simmons and Brown were simply watching entertaining TV shows or playing video games, and that's what they were reacting to around the exact moment that the Drummond announcement happened. No player was voted as a starter or selected by coaches as a reserve.

Unlike Major League Baseball and the NHL, there are no requirements for team representation among NBA All-Star selections. Therefore, he will be forced to sit out of his fifth-career All-Star Game, leaving Team LeBron with a vacancy. On an Instagram picture from the account @ballislife displaying the Twitter responses of both Brown and Simmons, alongside a tweet from the NBA All-Star account announcing Drummond's inclusion in the game, the Pistons' center shot back at Brown in the comments section.
