Team USA coach Popovich "dying" for Beal
Gregg Popovich feels for Bradley Beal, who has had to withdraw from Team USA's Olympics roster after contracting covid-19.
After two exhibition game losses, the bad news continues for USA Basketball, as Bradley Beal entered into coronavirus protocols, and, shortly after, Forward Jerami Grant followed suit, out of caution.
The news is especially disappointing for Beal, who would have participated in his first Olympics this year after being in the system for more than 10 years.
USA vs. Australia canceled
Following news of the health and safety concerns, USA Basketball announced that Friday’s game against Australia was canceled. USA’s final exhibition game is still on schedule for Sunday against Spain.
