NBA All-Star Game 2013: Time, TV schedule, radio and more

Kim Klement-US PRESSWIRE

Even though Carmelo Anthony's status is uncertain, the All-Star Game on Sunday should still be bunches of athletic fun, no matter what.

The best basketball players on planet Earth congregate on one court Sunday night for the 62nd annual NBA All-Star Game at the Toyota Center in Houston. Judging by the rosters, this year's contest shouldn't let down fans of basketball at its highest level, even if they have to wait until the middle of the fourth quarter.

Tip off is set for 8:30 p.m. ET after a concert by Ludacris, B.o.B. and Ke$ha figures to set the night's stage right. Following a season-ending injury to Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo and the uncertainty surrounding New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony, who suffered an arm contusion earlier this week and may or may not play in the All-Star game, the only for-sure starters in the Eastern Conference are Boston's Kevin Garnett and Dwyane Wade and LeBron James of the Miami Heat.

Eastern Conference reserves include Knicks' paint defender Tyson Chandler, Chris Bosh (Heat), Paul George (Indiana Pacers), Luol Deng (Chicago Bulls), Jrue Holiday (Philadelphia 76ers), Kyrie Irving (Cleveland Cavaliers), Joakim Noah (Bulls) and Brook Lopez (Brooklyn Nets).
