Crawford and Cadee added to All-Star Game
Injuries suffered during Round 11 of the iiNet NBL Championship have seen a couple of players receive a late call-up to participate in the 2012 National Basketball League All-Star Game at Adelaide Arena this Saturday (22 December).
Townsville Crocodiles swingman and London Olympian Peter Crawford has been added to the bench of the North All-Stars Team as a replacement for injured Sydney star Ian Crosswhite after the Kings centre was forced to withdraw due to an ankle injury.
Perth's Kevin Lisch has also been forced to withdraw from the game after suffering a Grade 2 groin strain. Lisch will be replaced on the South All-Stars team by local favourite Jason Cadee of the Adelaide 36ers.
As Lisch was voted in as a starter, Melbourne Tigers star and former number six NBA Draft pick Jonny Flynn has been elevated to the starting line-up for the South, while Cadee will come off the bench.
