U.S. Sports Desk, Jan 31 (EFE).- Brooklyn Nets center Brook Lopez has been named by NBA Commissioner David Stern as an Eastern Conference All-Star reserve.

Stern chose Lopez to replace Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo, who was voted in by the fans as a starter but will miss the rest of the season after tearing his right ACL on Jan. 25.

Lopez, initially passed over for an All-Star spot, will now make his debut in that NBA mid-season showcase on Feb. 17 at the Toyota Center in Houston. He will be the Nets' lone representative.

"It's a huge honor," Lopez said in a statement after the Nets' 105-85 home loss Wednesday night to the defending-champion Miami Heat.

"First and foremost, I couldn't have done it without my teammates. They make my job 100 times easier, playing with Deron (Williams), Joe (Johnson), Gerald (Wallace), they gift wrap me buckets and take a lot of attention away from me on the court. It is something I have been working towards and it's been a goal of mine and it will definitely be an exciting weekend."

The 24-year-old center is averaging 18.6 points, 7.3 rebounds and 2.2 blocked shots per game - tops for his team in all three categories - thus far in the 2012-13 season.
