The Philadelphia 76ers sealed a blockbuster deal by acquiring James Harden just before this year’s NBA trade deadline.

They got rid of Ben Simmons and completely changed their own perspective as the playoffs approached.

Still, anyone expecting to see Harden soon will have to wait a bit.

He would be out during the All-Star break as he recovers from a hamstring injury.

The team surely knew his situation during the trade, and the focus remains on his health and availability during the playoffs.

However, this injury news also means that he will not participate in this year’s All-Star Game.

Find Harden’s replacement

As 76ers fans and the rest of the NBA wait to see Harden suit up in his new uniform, the league needed an All-Star Game replacement for the star guard.

They made a smart move by going with Cleveland Cavaliers big man Jarrett Allen.

Allen leads this year with 16.2 points and 11.1 rebounds per game.

He was arguably a snub in the first place and his inclusion is fitting because the game itself is in Cleveland this year.

The Cavaliers are also near the top of the Eastern Conference with a 35-22 record, so it’s not an undeserved honor for the center.

The 76ers can give Harden all the time he needs to feel better again.

They are in a fantastic position as Joel Embiid has led the team all year with the Simmons saga in the background.

The addition of Harden is basically a bonus for the team considering Simmons was at home all season.
