John Wall injury could open door for Miami Heat All-Star

Draymond Green may have thought Jaylen Brown was deserving of an NBA All-Star selection, but Pistons center Andre Drummond had a different take. He was selected by National Basketball Association head coaches as an All-Star reserve and drafted by captain LeBron James of the Cleveland Cavaliers.

However, Candace Buckner of the Washington Post wrote "Wall is expected to miss six to eight weeks", meaning he is no chance of suiting up for the February 18, All Star game.

Japan's Fujifilm Reportedly Nears Deal With Xerox
The combined company's Board of Directors will include 12 members, seven of whom will be appointed by the Fujifilm Board. Xerox CEO Jeff Jacobson has been tapped to lead the newly-formed entity, which will also be named Fuji Xerox.

However, while this year's All Star game saw team captains LeBron and Steph Curry choose their line-ups from a pool of players that were voted for by the public, media and National Basketball Association players, Wall's replacement will be selected by National Basketball Association commissioner Adam Silver.

The Heat were the lone team among the Eastern Conference playoff seeds without a selection when the All-Stars teams were rounded out last week with the announcement of coaches' selections for the reserves.

Hyundai Santa Fe Penned Ahead of Reveal
Given the Santa Fe's more prosaic role - a family vehicle with up to seven seats and a ton of room - that's probably right. If the passenger in the back seat tries to get out of the auto without noticing an approaching vehicle an alarm will sound.

We'll see if that changes soon when NBA Commission Adam Silver makes his decision. Andre Drummond is no longer on that list after replacing the injured John Wall. When an all-star is sidelined, the commissioner selects a replacement from the same conference as the lost player. His team now sits in the fourth spot in the Eastern Conference at 29-21.

It's likely Silver will act quickly in extending an invitation to another player to replace Love.

Drummond is an All-Star for the second time. Featuring a new format in which team rosters were drafted by James and the Golden State Warriors' Stephen Curry, the All-Star Game will reach fans in more than 200 countries and territories in more than 40 languages. His name is Magic Johnson, and he was an All-Star that season.
