The fan vote, which opened on Christmas Day, accounts for 50% of the vote to determine the 10 All-Star starters. LeBron still leads all vote-getters with almost 2.8 million votes, while the Greek Freak leads the Eastern Conference with 2.67 million, slightly ahead of Kyrie Irving.

The Los Angeles Lakers remain on track to have their first All-Star since 2016 as LeBron James has garnered 2,779,812 votes to maintain his standing as the leading vote-getter in the second fan returns. Golden State's Steph Curry leads all Western Conference guards with just over 2 million votes while Kevin Durant is sitting at No. 4 among Western Conference frontcourt players.

Derrick Rose is still among the leading backcourt vote-getters in the Western Conference, trailing only Stephen Curry.

Toronto Raptors forward Kawhi Leonard remains in second place among Eastern Conference forwards after the second return of National Basketball Association all-star voting.

Current NBA players account for 25 percent of the vote; so does a media panel. Players may vote for their teammates or themselves. Unlike previous year, the All-Star draft WILL be televised this season although the draft date has not yet been announced.

After the fan voting has closed, the league will also provide an All-Star poll for players to fill out, as well as for select credentialed media.

The All-Star starters - and captains - will be announced January 24. The network will announce reserves, selected by National Basketball Association head coaches, on Thursday, Jan. 31. The Charlotte Hornets' Kemba Walker (858,798) continues to hold third place, while Philadelphia's Ben Simmons (695,032) remains in fourth place.

Complete details of the second 2019 NBA All-Star Game fan voting update below.
