The NBA All-Star ballot has been released.

Three Wizards are included, including two players yet to suit up this year. Insert your commentary here.

John Wall, Nene and Emeka Okafor are the three Washington players fans can attempt to vote into the 2013 All-Star game, which will take place Feb. 17 in Houston.

Obviously the list of 120 players is almost entirely pre-determined without much of an emphasis on early results. Just as obvious, Nene and Wall are worthy inclusions. Too bad their respective foot and knee injuries have had other plans. Even though center is no longer a stand-alone position, Okafor has averaged a double-double for his career.

Of those that have played, Bradley Beal, the Wizards leading scorer, is arguably Washington's top candidate through five games, though he remains off the overall radar. New Orleans' center Anthony Davis is the only rookie listed on the ballot.

In each conference fans can choose from 36 frontcourt players and 24 guards. Voting runs through Jan. 14 and can be accomplished on Twitter, Facebook and just about every platform available.

In case you were wondering the names JaVale McGee, Andray Blatche and Nick Young are not on the player list.
