Rasheed Wallace will replace Kevin Garnett in All-Star Game

The NBA announced today that Pistons forward Rasheed Wallace will replace Celtics forward Kevin Garnett on the Eastern Conference team in next Sunday's All-Star Game in New Orleans.

Pistons president Joe Dumars confirmed that Wallace would replace Garnett, who's missed the last seven games for Boston with an abdominal strain.

The announcement was made by the commissioner’s office after Garnett missed his seventh consecutive game with an abdominal strain. Celtics coach Doc Rivers, who will coach the East in the Feb. 17 game in New Orleans, said Garnett will not play until the team returns from the break.

“He’s out until after the All-Star break,” Rivers said after the Celtics beat the San Antonio Spurs 98-90 to improve to 5-2 since Garnett was injured.
