Currie, Harding added to all-star team

Washington Mystics Monique Currie and Lindsey Harding have been named as replacement players on the WNBA squad for Saturday's WNBA All Star Game (a matchup between WNBA all-stars and USA Basketball women's national team ).

From the WNBA news release:

Currie, a fifth-year forward, will fill the spot vacated by the Seattle Storm's Lauren Jackson, who suffered a concussion last Saturday against the Los Angeles Sparks. Harding, a fifth-year guard, will assume the roster spot vacated by the Atlanta Dream's Sancho Lyttle, who also is sidelined with a concussion.
The Mystics now have three players participating in the game, including Crystal Langhorne, Washington's leader in scoring (17.0 ppg) and rebounding (9.8 rpg), who was voted to the WNBA squad earlier this week by the league's head coaches.

How can an Eastern Conference player (Currie) replace a Western Conference player (Jackson)? I think the facts have not been reported accurately by the Post. It does not make sense.

"How can an Eastern Conference player (Currie) replace a Western Conference player (Jackson)? I think the facts have not been reported accurately by the Post. It does not make sense."

Because this is not an East-West Conf All-Star Game. It's a game between members of the USA Basketball National Team and WNBA All Stars, the latter team made up of players from both conferences.
