OAKLAND — Warriors forward David Lee was left off a list of seven All-Star reserves who earned selections Thursday to play for the Western Conference in the All-Star game in New Orleans on Feb. 16, according to a report from Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski.
Lee had been hoping to be named an All-Star for the second straight season and third time overall. He has averaged 19 points and 9.8 rebounds this season.
There remains a chance Lee could make the team if he is named by the NBA commissioner as an injury replacement for a player unable to participate, with Western Conference starter Kobe Bryant being one such player. Lee was initially snubbed in 2010 while with the New York Knicks before being named to the squad as an injury replacement.
The Warriors will be represented in the game by guard Stephen Curry, who was voted by the fans as a Western Conference starter. Second-year forward Harrison Barnes has been named to the Rising Stars Challenge roster for a game to be played Feb. 14.
