After Rajon Rondo was snubbed for the 2012 NBA All-Star Game, it turns out he'll be making it to Orlando after all.

According to Dime Magazine, Rondo will take Joe Johnson's place in the All-Star Game as Johnson deals with a knee injury.

Rondo wasn't included during the voting mostly because he hadn't played many games. But he's averaging 14.8 points, 9.5 assists, 4.9 rebounds and 1.6 steals while shooting nearly 49 percent this season.
