The Women's National Basketball Association (WNBA) All-Star Game is an annual exhibition basketball game played between the Eastern Conference and the Western Conference All-Stars. Eleven players, five starters and six reserves, from each conference are chosen. The starters are chosen through electronic ballots cast daily by fans on WNBA.com. The leading vote recipients at each position start the game. The reserves are chosen by voting among the league's head coaches. Coaches are not allowed to vote for their own players. Through the 2013 game, coaches could select two guards, two forwards, one center and two players regardless of positions. Starting with the 2014 game, the forward and center positions were folded into a single frontcourt category; coaches can now vote for two guards, three frontcourt players, and one player regardless of position. If a player is unable to participate due to injury or illness, a replacement will be selected.
