Like last season, the all-star format will be a playground-style pick-em with the two conference-leading vote-getters as captains.
The teams aren't split by conference for the actual game, though.
Fan makeup 50 percent of the voting for the 10 starters for the All-Star Game, which will take place on February 17 in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Meanwhile, Kyle Kuzma (584,842 votes) and Lonzo Ball (529,164) are holding at eighth among Western Conference frontcourt players and guards, respectively. A third report on all-star balloting will come out on January 17 before the final votes are then revealed for the 10 starters on January 24.
Walker is third among East guards with 858,798 votes, ahead of the Philadelphia 76ers' Ben Simmons with 695,032.
