Cleveland Cavaliers center Jarrett Allen has been named as a replacement in 2022 All Star Game by NBA commissioner Adam Silver.

Allen will replace Philadelphia 76ers guard James Harden, who is rehabbing his hamstring strain. 

Harden, who recently got traded from Brooklyn Nets, has already joined the Sixers' practice.

The All-Star Weekend festivities will be held in Cleveland, and now the Cavaliers have two representatives in the All-Star Game, as Allen will join teammate Darius Garland. 

Both Allen and Garland are playing for  Team LeBron.

Allen is averaging career-highs 16.2 points and 11.1 rebounds per game, while also posting 1.3 blocks on 66.5% shooting from the field.

Allen, 24, becomes the third All-Star replacement this season, joining the San Antonio Spurs guard Dejounte Murray and Charlotte Hornets guard  LaMelo Ball.

They replace Golden State Warriors' Draymond Green and Brooklyn Nets' Kevin Durant due to injuries.
