Anthony Davis was not selected as a Western Conference All-Star reserve, despite playing at an MVP level during the first half of the season.

Davis narrowly missed being named an All-Star starter last week, and was ultimately snubbed in favor of Memphis center Jaren Jackson Jr. and other frontcourt players like Lauri Markkanen, Domantas Sabonis, and Paul George.

Through the first 25 games of the season, Davis was averaging 27.4 points, 12.1 rebounds, and 2.1 blocks with a shooting average of 59.4%.

He had a remarkable 12-game stretch where he averaged 32.7 points and 13.9 rebounds on 62.6% shooting, including a 55-point game.

However, Davis' 20 missed games were a factor in his snub, despite the fact that he was playing better than many in the league during November and December.

There is a chance that Davis could be named an injury replacement if any of the selected players get injured.

If not, the time off will allow him to fully recover and prepare for a playoff push in the second half of the season.
