Utah Jazz guard Mike Conley has been added to the Team Durant roster for the NBA All-Star Game as an injury replacement for Phoenix Suns standout Devin Booker.

Conley, 33, joins Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert as the NBA-leading Jazz’s third representative at the game.

The Brooklyn Nets also have three All-Stars – James Harden, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant, though Durant won’t play due to injury.

He is averaging 16.1 points, 5.7 assists, 3.5 rebounds and 1.4 steals per game, while shooting a strong 42.2 per cent from three-point range. The Jazz have the best record in the NBA at 27-9.
