Team USA already lost Bradley Beal for the Tokyo Olympics due to coronavirus issues.
Now, Bulls guard Zach LaVine isn’t traveling to Tokyo.
Out of an abundance of caution, USA Basketball Men’s National Team member Zach LaVine has been placed under USA Basketball’s health and safety protocols and will not travel with the team to Tokyo today, USA Basketball announced Monday. USA Basketball hopes that Zach will be able to join the team in Tokyo later this week.
However, if LaVine can’t play, late roster changes get more complicated.
