Kyrie Irving, DeMar DeRozan, Jimmy Butler, LeBron James and Giannis Antetokounmpo have been named starters for the Eastern Conference based on votes from fans, media and the players themselves.

This is the fourth time Davis has been picked for the NBA's Western Conference All-Star team.

After last week's return, Davis was 63,565 votes behind San Antonio's Kawhi Leonard to land the third and final starting spot among the Western Conference frontcourt players.

LeBron James and Kyrie Irving will go head-to-head once more against Kevin Durant and Stephen Curry after the quartet were voted to start this year's NBA All-Star match. Two seasons ago, he was voted in as a starter but had to miss the game because of a shoulder injury.
