Voting concludes for the NBA All-Star game on January 21. The final ballots are set to be cast, so let's designate the Fantasy All-Star Team of the first-most half's outstanding players. Since the NBA typically has two All-Star teams, we will select four guards, four forwards, and two centres for our fantasy All-Star team. 


Luka Doncic, Dallas Mavericks 

Despite his already impressive statistics, Doncic is currently having the finest season of his career. His 38.1% usage rate has allowed him to average 33.7 points, 2.8 3-pointers, 8.8 rebounds, 8.8 assists, and 1.6 steals per game, in addition to 8.8 rebounds, 8.8 assists, and 1.6 steals a game. He is also shooting a career-best 49.7 percent from the field. The one significant drawback to his fantasy performance is that he shoots 73.3% from the free throw line.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Thunder of Oklahoma City

Gilgeous-Alexander is the primary reason why the Thunder have a legitimate shot at a postseason berth. He has elevated his game, averaging 30.5 points, 4.9 rebounds, 5.5 assists, and 1.7 steals per game. In addition, he is shooting 50.1% from the field and 90.8% from the free-throw line, which is advantageous for fantasy managers considering that he attempts 20.0 shots and 10.3 free throws a game. Injuries limited him to 56 games last season, but he has missed only four games this season. 

Tyrese Haliburton is a member of the Indiana Pacers

It is possible that Haliburton will lead the next wave of outstanding fantasy point guards. He has rewarded fantasy managers by averaging 20.2 points per game, 4.0 rebounds per game, 10.2 assists per game, 1.8 steals per game, and three 3-pointers a game while shooting 48% from the field. His average of 2.60 turnovers per game is particularly remarkable for players in nine-category leagues.

Donovan Mitchell, Cleveland Cavaliers 

Mitchell's transition from the Jazz to the Cavaliers has obviously not hindered him. He is averaging career-highs in points (28.4), 3-pointers (3.7), and field goal percentage (48.4%). His assists have decreased slightly, but he has more than made up for it with his increased scoring and efficiency, averaging 4.8 per game.


Kevin Durant, Brooklyn Nets

Prior to his knee injury, Durant was having an MVP-caliber season with the Nets. Over the course of 39 games, he averaged 29.7 ppg, 6.7 rpg, 5.3 apg, 1.5 bpg, and 1.8 3-pointers per game. He also shot 55.9% from the field and 93.4% from the free-throw line, which is equally outstanding. There are few, if any, weaknesses in his game. 

Jayson Tatum, Boston Celtics

Are you noticing a pattern? If you want to be an All-Star in your fantasy league, you need more than amazing counting stats. Tatum has them, averaging 31.2 points, 8.5 rebounds, 4.3 assists, and 3.3 3-pointers per game. However, when you consider that he also shoots 46.8% overall and 87.1% on free throws, he becomes one of the best fantasy forwards and one of the best players overall.

Domantas Sabonis

Sabonis is as dependable as they come for the Sacramento Kings. In his first full season with the Kings, he has averaged 18.9 points per game, 12.6 rebounds per game, and 7.1 assists per game while shooting an astounding 61% from the field. There was a brief concern when he sustained a thumb injury on his non-shooting hand, but he has played despite the ailment and has showed no signs of it hurting his performance. With the Kings aiming to end their postseason skid, Sabonis should continue to be heavily relied upon in the second half.

Jaren Jackson Jr. Memphis Grizzlies

This season, Jackson has made great progress. Despite missing the first month of the season due to a foot ailment, he makes the team due to his exceptional skill set, averaging 1.5 three-pointers, 1.1 steals, and 3.3 blocks per game. Additionally, the big man is shooting 51.3% from the field and pulling down a career-high 6.8 rebounds per game. Throughout his career, he has struggled with injuries, but if he can maintain this level of play, he will likely be on many championship fantasy squads. 


Nikola Jokic, Denver Nuggets

Jokic may soon earn another Kia Most Valuable Player title. Simply put, he has once again been dominant. This season, with a healthy supporting cast, his scoring has decreased slightly, but he's still averaging 25.1 ppg on a career-high 62.6% field goal percentage. In addition, his 11.0 rpg and 9.0 apg put him in danger of averaging a triple-double. The first overall pick in many fantasy draughts has also missed only four games, putting him on track to play at least 72 games for the eighth consecutive season.

Joel Embiid, Philadelphia 76ers

In contrast to Jokic, Embiid has struggled to remain on the floor throughout his career. This season, he has missed 11 games, but he is averaging a career-high 33.6 points per game while shooting 53.7% from the field and 85.6% from the charity stripe. His rebounding numbers are down, but with 9.8 per game, he's not exactly hurting. With his 4.2 apg, 1.1 three-pointers per game, 1.0 steals per game, and 1.7 blocks per game, Embiid deserves to be on this team.
