NBA All-Star Game Voting Totals Released Ahead Of Roster Announcement

The Los Angeles Lakers' LeBron James leads all players with 2,779,812 fan votes while Dallas Mavericks rookie Luka Doncic (2,220,077) continues to rank second in the west. Golden State's Steph Curry leads all Western Conference guards with just over 2 million votes while Kevin Durant is sitting at No. 4 among Western Conference frontcourt players.

Hornets guard Kemba Walker is on the outside of being an All-Star Game starter in Charlotte next month, based on a running tally of fan votes the National Basketball Association announced Thursday.

Current NBA players account for 25 percent of the vote; so does a media panel.

All current National Basketball Association players and a media panel each account for 25 percent of the vote, with every voter completing one full ballot featuring two guards and three frontcourt players from each conference.

The format for drafting teams from last season remains in place.

Voting concludes on January 21.

The latest round of All-Star voting returns are in and, at the very top of each conference, nothing has changed. Players may vote for their teammates or themselves.

The captains' draft will be televised this season. Houston Rockets guard James Harden and Oklahoma City guard Russell Westbrook remain the third and fourth guards, respectively, in the conference.

Walker is third among East guards with 858,798 votes, ahead of the Philadelphia 76ers' Ben Simmons with 695,032. The network will announce reserves, selected by National Basketball Association head coaches, on Thursday, Jan. 31.

The two guards and three front-court players with the best score in each conference will be named NBA All-Star Game starters.

Details for the All-Star draft have yet to be announced.
