HOUSTON (AP) - Chris Bosh will start in the All-Star game, giving the NBA champion Miami Heat three starters for the Eastern Conference.
Bosh says he was told Friday by Miami coach Erik Spoelstra, who will lead the East, he had been chosen to replace injured Boston guard Rajon Rondo in the lineup.
Bosh will join teammates LeBron James and Dwyane Wade as starters Sunday. The three played together here in 2006 as East All-Stars, long before they teamed up in 2010 and won their first title together last summer.
Rondo was voted to start by fans, but had to withdraw because of a knee injury.
