Dwyane Wade is also likely to get a farewell All-Star mention, getting close to 1,200,000 votes in his last season in the National Basketball Association. Behind him, Mavericks rookie Luka Doncic (2,220,077) has overtaken Warriors guard Stephen Curry (2,094,158), Raptors forward Kawhi Leonard (2,092,806) and Timberwolves guard Derrick Rose (1,986,840) to move all the way into fourth overall.

George was fifth in the first fan returns last week but has since passed Anthony Davis and Kevin Durant for third in the voting with 1,859,216 total votes in the latest returns.

Meanwhile, LeBron James still leads all vote getters in the west with over 2.7 million votes.

James leads all players in the most recent totals and Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo is second overall in the fan voting, which closes January 21.

James Harden, the Houston Rockets guard who was the regular-season MVP in 2017-18, is more than 40,000 points behind Durant.

This year's All-Star game will be held in Charlotte, North Carolina on February 17.

After the fan voting has closed, the league will also provide an All-Star poll for players to fill out, as well as for select credentialed media.

The two team captains will draft rosters from the players voted as starters and reserves, picking players regardless of conference affiliation.
