2013 NBA All-Star Game: Time, TV schedule, radio, rosters and more

Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

The Celtics won't have more than one All-Star on the court Sunday for the first time since 2007.

Boston Celtics power forward Kevin Garnett will appear in his 15th All-Star Game on Sunday, the lone Celtics' representative to be on the court in Houston.

Both Garnett and Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo were voted in by the fans to start the All-Star Game, but Rondo's season-ending knee injury prompted his replacement. Miami Heat forward Chris Bosh -- a selection of Heat coach Erik Spoelstra, the Eastern Conference's coach Sunday -- will start in Rondo's place.

Garnett has been one of the annual trade rumor mill's chosen objects of affection this season as the trade deadline approaches Thursday, but Garnett said Saturday afternoon he would not waive his full no-trade clause and that he wanted to stay in Boston.

He cryptically said Sunday's All-Star Game would "definitely" be his last All-Star Game, but he didn't elaborate any further. According to Baxter Holmes of the Boston Globe, Garnett said:

"I'm not going to act like I've got more All-Star games in me. I'm actually going to enjoy this one with friends and family."

Coverage of the All-Star Game begins Sunday at 7 p.m. ET on TNT, and the game tips off at 8:30.
