Devin Booker had planned to "go off the grid" to an undisclosed location, using the All-Star break to relax with family and friends and not think about basketball.

The Phoenix Suns guard will play in the NBA's annual showcase this Sunday in Chicago, the league announced Thursday.

Devin Booker has been named by Adam Silver as an injury replacement to the 2020 All-Star Game for Damian Lillard. If selected over other West contenders such as Ja Morant and Paul George, it will be Booker's first All-Star selection and first for. The 23-year old, now in his fifth season, had never earned All Star honors until this year, and it took an injury for him to get the nod.

Honestly, I was more excited to see Lillard rap than play in the All-Star game or compete in the 3-point contest. The former Kentucky star won the event in 2018.

Booker is averaging 26.4 points, 6.3 assists and 4.2 rebounds per game on 49.6 percent shooting from the field and 35.8 percent from 3-point range this season.

Booker will replace Lillard as a reserve on Team LeBron.
