Westbrook was one of seven reserves picked from the  Western Conference, and will go into a pool, with captains LeBron James and Stephen Curry selecting starters and reserves to be on their team.

Westbrook was the only Thunder player selected as either a starter or reserve.

The NBA All-Star Game is February 18 in Los  Angeles.
