NBA: Sacramento Kings at Milwaukee Bucks Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

The NBA’s All Star team was reported this afternoon, and Khris Middleton was not selected as a reserve for the Eastern Conference, per The Athletic’s Shams Charania.

Middleton, a two-time All-Star boasts averages of 20.5 points, 6 rebounds, and 5.7 assists while shooting 50.5/43.1/89.5 this season. While it’s disappointing to see him left off, he does get to use the break to rest!

The Milwaukee Bucks will be represented by Giannis Antetokounmpo and there is a chance that Middleton could still sneak in as an injury replacement. Of the players included in the Eastern Conference this year, Zach LaVine and Nikola Vucevic stand out as, let’s say, questionable honorees over Middleton, but Khris hit a rough patch at the same time that the Bucks did, and those stretches are fresh in the minds of coaches.

Besides: is this All-Star game really necessary?
