Zion Williamson will replace Joel Embiid as an All-Star Game starter on Team Durant, according to Adrian Wojnarowski.

Williamson, 20, will now be starting in his first All-Star appearance.

Embiid and Ben Simmons were both ruled out of the All-Star Game after a barber they were in contact with tested positive for COVID-19.

There are no plans to replace Embiid and Simmons’ All-Star roster spots.
