Boston Celtics forward Jayson Tatum watched Team USA win 108-80 over Argentina from the bench. The 23-year-old, called to be one of the main references of the American team in Tokyo 2020, he was absent due to a knee injury that will be evaluated “day by day”.
The coaching staff of the United States team did not give too many details about the extent of the injury, which they called nothing serious. According to team sources, consulted by ESPN, the player rested as a precaution as it is a back-to-back match and there is no worrying problem.
Tatum averages 11.5 points and 5 rebounds in the concentration of preparation of the Olympic Games of the NBA stars, who last night breathed relief when cutting an unprecedented streak of two consecutive losses in friendly preparation.
