LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Los Angeles Clippers center Chris Kaman will replace the Trail Blazers' Brandon Roy in this weekend's All-Star game.
Roy injured his right hamstring last month. Roy, in his fourth season with the Blazers, made the All-Star team as a reserve for the third straight season.
Kaman will be making his first All-Star appearance. He is averaging a career-high 20.2 points and 9.0 rebounds while shooting 50 percent from the field.
He's the first Clippers player to be chosen to the All-Star game since Elton Brand in 2006.
Clippers guard Eric Gordon will participate in the Rookie Challenge & Youth Jam, and compete in the first All-Star Slam Dunk-In against Toronto's DeMar DeRozan at halftime of that game.
