Blazers star guard Damian Lillard exited late in the game Wednesday vs the Memphis Grizzlies with a torn right groin. He will undergo a MRI Thursday afternoon.

Lillard announced he will not play All Star weekened in either the three point contest or the All Star game itself. He will however still perform his music.

Suns guard Devin Booker who came in 8th in voting will replace Lillard in both the All Star game and three point contest.

Lillard has vowed to return to help the Blazers make a late season run for the playoffs despite his injury. The Blazers (25-31) are in 9th place, 5 games behind the 8th seeded Memphis Grizzlies.
