Head coaches will not be allowed to vote for their own players, while broadcasters and media representatives will.
The votes will be tallied and the 56 All-Stars will be known. Twenty-eight players will be on the East and 28 will be on the West. Starters will be named based on those players receiving the highest vote tally at their position in their division.
For the fourth straight year, there will also be a Final Fan Vote, where the final All-Star player for the East and West teams is selected by the fans. The final spots will be narrowed down to five players per division, and fans will be able to vote via an online poll. The players receiving the most votes will be named All-Stars.
