Team USA’s scheduled pre-Olympic exhibition game against Australia on Friday in Las Vegas has been canceled due to health and safety concerns. USA Basketball announced the news on Thursday night in a statement on Twitter:
Out of an abundance of caution, the USA Men’s National Team exhibition versus Australia on Friday has been cancelled. The USA Women’s National Team’s matchup with Australia will be played at 2:30 PM ET on NBCSN.
Earlier in the day, USA Basketball announced that Washington Wizards star Bradley Beal will not participate in the Olympics after he was placed in the health and safety protocols. In addition, Detroit Pistons forward Jerami Grant has also been entered into the protocols, though he is still expected to travel to Tokyo later this month. A replacement for Beal has not yet been announced.
Four NFL teams remain under 50 percent vaccinated less than two weeks from the start of training camp, a person familiar with the vaccination rates told the Associated Press. Washington, Indianapolis, Arizona and the Los Angeles Chargers had the four lowest COVID-19 vaccination rates in the league as of Thursday, according to the person, who spoke on condition of anonymity, because the league hasn’t released the numbers.
