Kyle Lowry can rest easy in his sunny retreat.

Barring something unexpected, he won't be getting a call to rush to New Orleans as a last-minute fill-in.

Dwyane Wade, who was dealing with a leg issue, confirmed on Friday that he will play in the all-star game Sunday. Had he been unable to go, one of Lowry or Indiana's Lance Stephenson probably would have received a call.
