Will LeBron James be named an NBA All-Star Game captain for the fifth straight season?

The latest round of voting results had James and Kevin Durant as the leading vote-getters in the Western and Eastern Conferences, respectively. James has been a captain every season since the format changed. Durant served as a captain last season, but did not play in the game because of a hamstring strain.

Yahoo Sports’ Chris Haynes reported Tuesday night on TNT Durant would miss his second straight All-Star Game as he continues to rehab a left MCL sprain.

The captains and starters will be announced Thursday on TNT ahead of the Los Angeles Lakers-Philadelphia 76ers game. Reserves will be announced Feb. 3. Participants in the Skills Challenge, 3-Point Contest and Slam Dunk competition will be unveiled on Feb. 8.

The All-Star Game captains will draft their teams on Feb. 10.

The 2022 NBA All-Star Game is scheduled for Feb. 20 in Cleveland. The game will be televised on TNT at 8 p.m. ET.

Also during All-Star weekend, the celebrity game and Rising Stars will be held Feb. 18. The NBA x HBCU Classic between Morgan State and Howard will take place Feb. 19 along with the Skills Challenge, 3-Point Contest and Slam Dunk competition. The G League Next Gem Game will be played Feb. 20 between the G League Ignite and Canton Charge.

Here are Yahoo Sports’ selections for All-Star Game starters.
