There is currently no reason why John Wall is not in the competition anymore because he is not injured, but as of now Wall will still be in the All-Star game on Sunday night in Madison Square Garden. Tonight we see a preview of the first round matchup as Isaiah Thomas and the Phoenix Suns take on Beverley and the Houston Rockets.
