One more Team USA member announced that he will not be part of the team in the upcoming FIBA World Cup, however at least he had a solid excuse.
Kyle Lowry announced via Instagram that he will not be fit for the upcoming tournament. This was almost expected since the Raptors announced that the All-Star point guard underwent a procedure to repair damaged ligaments in his left thumb back on the 19th of July.
There have been reports about Lowry’s wish to be fit on time in order to play for the national team, but ultimately that was not possible.
