Next month’s NBA All-Star Game continued to come into focus on Monday. The Athletic’s Shams Charania and ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski both highlighted details for the event on social media.

Charania pointed out that players participating in the showcase in Atlanta must adhere to a strict travel schedule.

Wojnarowksi revealed that players must take part in regular testing and they can travel with a small party to the event.

An updated look at the fan vote showed that Damian Lillard narrowly trailed Steph Curry and Luka Doncic in the race for the starting positions in the Western Conference backcourt. Even if Lillard doesn’t surpass that duo in the fan vote, he is a lock to qualify for the event as a reserve.

The 2021 NBA All-Star Game is currently scheduled to unfold on March 7.
