The NBA will announce the All-Star reserves on TNT at 4 p.m. PST tonight, and Stephen Curry and David Lee are among the viable candidates to have their name called. A Warriors player has not been named to an All-Star team since Latrell Sprewell in 1997.

Curry is averaging 20.9 PPG and 6.6 APG, while Lee is averaging 19.6 PPG and 10.8 RPG.
