Miami Heat guard Goran Dragic will replace the injured Kevin Love in the 2018 NBA All-Star game, the NBA announced.

Dragic will join Team LeBron who now has three injury replacements on it after injuries to DeMarcus Cousins, John Wall and Kevin Love. The announcement also reveals that Dragic was next in line after Andre Drummond in the Eastern Conference to being voted in by coaches.

With the Miami Heat sitting at 4th in the East, it seems only right that someone be named an All-Star to represent them. This will be Dragic’s first All-Star appearance, and the only Heat player on the roster to ever be named an All-Star. He is the 8th player in Heat history to be named an All-Star.

This season, Dragic is leading the Heat in scoring at over 17 PPG and has helped lead them to a 29-22 record.
