With Kobe Bryant injured and out of Sunday's All-Star Game at Cowboys Stadium, reports from multiple news organizations say that West head coach George Karl will likely start Mavericks' forward Dirk Nowitzki.

Karl told the Denver Post that he is leaning towards Nowitzki over Chauncey Billups mainly because the game is in North Texas.

The starters for the West would include Nowitzki, Steve Nash, Tim Duncan, Carmelo Anthony and Amare Stoudemire.
