Kristaps Porzingis finished a bit shy of being voted in as an All-Star Game Starter, but he’ll definitely participate in at least one event in Toronto.

Porzingis was named to the Rising Stars Challenge, a game played on the first night of All-Star Weekend between the top rookies and sophomores in the NBA. Porzingis, who hails from Latvia, will play for the “World” team.

Will Porzingis be selected for a skills competition, the dunk contest, or some Saturday event? He’s a long shot to be named a reserve for the big game, but you have to figure the NBA would like to tap into his mammoth popularity with one more event.
