ANKARA (AA) - Philadelphia 76ers' star duo Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons will miss the 2021 All-Star Game after contacting a person who tested positive for COVID-19.

"Embiid and Simmons — prior to traveling to Atlanta — had contact with an individual who was confirmed to have tested positive for the coronavirus. Therefore, Embiid (Team Durant) and Simmons (Team LeBron) were ruled out for the game and kept away from other players and personnel," NBA said in a statement on Sunday hours before All-Star Game.

Team Durant head coach Doc Rivers selected New Orleans Pelicans star Zion Williamson to replace Embiid as a starter.

The 2021 All-Star Game will be played on Sunday at the State Farm Arena in Atlanta, Georgia.​​​​​​​
