Jayson Tatum will not suit up for Team USA in their exhibition game vs. Argentina on Tuesday night.

The Boston Celtics star is considered day-to-day with right knee soreness, according to The Athletic's Shams Charania.

While Tatum's injury doesn't appear to be serious, that certainly is less-than-ideal news for the C's. The 23-year-old's status will be worth monitoring over the next week as Team USA prepares for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.

USA Basketball is 0-2 so far in exhibition play with losses to Nigeria and Australia. Tatum scored 15 and eight points in those matchups, respectively.

Team USA will begin play in Tokyo on July 25 vs. France, followed by Iran on July 28 and the Czech Republic on July 31.
