The Denver Nuggets might be atop the National Basketball Association's Northwest Division, but they won't have a single player start at the All-Star Game on February 15, according to the Rocky Mountain News. Tim Duncan of San Antonio and Amare Stoudemire of Phoenix edged out Carmelo Anthony for the NBA's Western Conference starting forward roles. Anthony's injured right hand, which has caused him to miss the past seven games, seemed to hurt his chances. Chauncey Billups, meanwhile, finished 11th in voting among guards.
