This is Tatum's fifth career All-Star selection. He has earned an All-Star nod in all but his first two seasons in the league. Last year, he earned All-Star MVP honors with a 55-point performance.

Through 41 games this season, Tatum is averaging 27.0 points, 8.4 rebounds, and 4.4 assists while shooting 46.9 percent from the field (36.1 percent on 3-pointers). He was named the NBA Eastern Conference Player of the Month for games played in October and November.

The 2024 NBA All-Star Game reserves will be announced on Feb. 1. Jaylen Brown, Kristaps Porzingis, and Derrick White are candidates to join Tatum on the East roster.

This year's All-Star festivities are set for Feb. 18 in Indiana.
