Team USA suffered another blow with Kevin Durant pulling out of the FIBA Tournament on August 8th.
Durant, the reigning MVP, decided to sit out due to mental and physical exhaustion.
This decision, comes at the heels of the season-ending injury, that Indiana Pacers’ Paul George suffered last week during scrimmage play amongst the members of Team USA.
It is rumored that the injury is the reason why Kevin Durant will now be sitting out.
With Durant out, the front court will have to adjust to the absence of him and Paul George.
Anthony Davis is the only superstar remaining that can play Durant’s position.
Other players available to play the position include Chandler Parsons and Gordon Hayward.
The FIBA tournament will start on August 30th in Spain.
