The Washington Wizards will be represented during the NBA All-Star Weekend Saturday night after all. While JaVale McGee won't be participating in the Slam Dunk Contest, John Wall will once again compete in the Skills Challenge, the Wizards and the league announced.

Wall will be competing against defending champion Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors, Russell Westbrook of the Oklahoma City Thunder, Kyrie Irving of the Cleveland Cavaliers, Tony Parker of the San Antonio Spurs and Deron Williams of the New Jersey Nets.

Wall competed in the event last year, finishing fourth with a time of 39.3 seconds. Only Chris Paul, who is not in this year's event, was worse. Curry eventually defeated Westbrook in the finals to take home the crown.

"I got the same routine. All it is, is you gotta get the basketballs through the little [nets] when you make the passes. That's the toughest part, making the passes. Everything else is pretty easy," he told the team's website.
