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 head coaches. Coaches are not allowed to vote for their own players, and can select two guards, two forwards, one center and two players regardless of positions. If a player is unable to participate due to injury, a replacement will be selected.
