LeBron James, Giannis Antetokounmpo Expand Leads In Second ASG Voting Returns

Fan voting counts 50 percent toward deciding the five starting spots from each conference.

Complete details of the second 2019 NBA All-Star Game fan voting update below.

Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James leads all players in the league with 2,779,812 votes. George has jumped Golden State's Kevin Durant and New Orleans' Anthony Davis into the Top 3 in fan voting for Western Conference frontcourt players.

Kyrie Irving leads all Eastern Conference guards while Kawhi Leonard joins James, Doncic, Curry and Irving as the fifth player with at least 2 million votes.

Derrick Rose is still among the leading backcourt vote-getters in the Western Conference, trailing only Stephen Curry.

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

Arsenal will move level with four-placed Chelsea with a victory over West Ham United in Saturday's early kick-off. Emery said: "Little by little Koscielny is feeling better and he can play consistently in the next matches".

All current National Basketball Association players and a media panel each account for 25 percent of the vote, with those voters completing one full ballot featuring two guards and three frontcourt players from each conference.

Just like previous year, the leading vote-getter from each conference will serve as a captain and will draft their rosters from the pool of players voted as starters and reserves in each conference.

The teams aren't split by conference for the actual game, though.

Last year was the first year of the captain format, and this year will be the first time the captains' draft will be televised, per this ESPN.com report. NBA All-Star weekend will tip off on February 15. A third report on all-star balloting will come out on January 17 before the final votes are then revealed for the 10 starters on January 24.

The fan vote, which opened December 25, accounts for 50 percent of the vote to determine the 10 All-Star starters.
