Pero Antic's ankle injury will reportedly cost him his spot in the Rising Stars Challenge per a report by the Arizona Republic's Paul Coro. Antic will be replaced by Phoenix center Miles Plumlee.

Antic was expected to be out 2-4 weeks and the All-Star Game would fall in the three week window. He is out of his walking boot but still has not returned to practice and remains listed as out on the official injury report. For now it is just a report but we will pass along any information once it has been confirmed.
