Cavs rookie guard Kyrie Irving and veteran big man Anderson Varejao were not added to the NBA Eastern Conference All-Star team on Thursday night.

There was some speculation one of the two would get added, however Deron Williams of the New Jersey Nets got the nod over Irving, who is dealing with a concussion. Irving is averaging 18 points and five assists per game.

Varejao may have been snubbed in favor of Roy Hibbert of the Pacers. He scores just three points per game more than the Cavs bouncing Brazilian, but Anderson topped him in rebounds per game, good enough for number four in the NBA.

The NBA All-Star game is in Orlando. Irving and fellow rookie Tristan Thompson have been selected to play in the Rising Stars Challenge.

Meanwhile, Irving was evaluated again at the Cleveland Clinic for the concussion suffered Tuesday night. He is listed as day-to-day.
