Kevin Love is also low for the Games

Kevin Love will also be out of the United States team for the Tokyo Games due to a right calf injury, forcing him to replace two players on his roster, after the Americans announced on Thursday that the guard for the Washington Wizards Bradley Beal would miss the Olympics because he was isolated by anti-coronavirus health and safety protocols.

Love was an Olympic champion in London in 2012 and was also on the team that won gold two years earlier at the World Cups.

His dismissal leaves Popovich’s team in the picture, who also cannot yet count on Jrue Holiday, Khris Middleton and Devin Booker, who will not join the team until after the NBA Finals. The Americans canceled their exhibition against Australia scheduled for Friday night, and have a final friendly against Spain scheduled for Sunday, which in principle continues.
