The pair will pick their respective teams from a collective pool of starters and reserves on February 10.
Former number 1 pick Andrew Wiggins has experienced a revival in the Bay Area recording 18.1 points on 40 percent three point shooting, as well as 4.2 rebounds and 2 assists.
Morant has established himself as one of the league’s premier point guard this season putting up 25.8 points, on 36 percent three pointing shooting, 6.9 assists, 5.9 rebounds and 1.3 steals.
Portland Trail Blazers leader Damian Lillard is likely to miss making the team as a reserve as he recovers from abdominal surgery.
The 71st NBA All-Star Game will be played on Sunday, February 20 in Cleveland.
