John Wall won't have any company at the All-Star Game after no Wizards players were chosen by coaches to be reserves Thursday night, but the Atlanta Hawks had three.
We know the Eastern Conference All-Star starters, including Washington Wizards guard John Wall. By Thursday night we'll know the reserves as well. One man's take who gets those reserve slots.
