Johnson was selected as a reserve by the Eastern Conference coaches.
In 42 games this season, Johnson is averaging 15.7 points, 3.4 rebounds and 2.8 assists in 33.7 minutes. He is shooting 44.3 percent from the field, 38.6 percent from 3-point range and 81.3 percent from the free throw stripe.
Johnson has been Brooklyn’s most consistent player all season. He has hit two game-winning buzzer-beaters (Nov. 15 in Phoenix and Jan. 2 in Oklahoma City), and he drained a career-high 10 3-pointers Dec. 16 against Philadelphia.
Johnson tweeted that he was glad to make the team.
Very honored to be selected to NBA AllStar.

Comparing Kyle Lowry & Joe Johnson.. Kyle numbers are better & he's on a winning team. So how is he not the obvious choice? #Raptors
