NBA Commissioner Adam Silver has sole discretion when announcing All-Star Game replacements.
Wall was selected by National Basketball Association coaches as an all-star reserve and selected by Cleveland's James in the talent draft to fill out rosters for his squad and a team led by Golden State star Stephen Curry. The chosen player will then play for Team Lebron in the all-star game.
A person with direct knowledge of the injury has told the Associated Press that Wall could miss six to eight weeks.
But that hope was quickly wiped away after NBA Commissioner Adam Silver picked Pistons center Andre Drummond to replace injured Wizards guard John Wall on Team LeBron in the February 18 All-Star Game. The 6-11 Drummond is averaging an NBA-leading and career-high 15.1 rebounds per game to go with 14.7 points, a career-high 3.8 assists, a career-high 1.54 steals and 1.37 blocked shots.

When Detroit Pistons center Andre Drummond found out he was not selected as an NBA All-Star, he took to social media to express his frustration. Those players were Ben Simmons of the Philadelphia 76ers and Jaylen Brown of the Boston Celtics.
Drummond is an All-Star for the second time. Although his role could take a slight dip with the addition of Blake Griffin, it seems as though Drummond is developing into the player that the Pistons thought he could become when they drafted him. Oddly enough, he's shooting just 59.1 percent from the free throw line, which is worse than Drummond's 62.5 percent mark.
