Team USA cancel their friendly against Australia

The United States faces a new opponent
and in their series of friendlies in preparation for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. LCovid-19 has appeared within the United States and has caused Bradley Beal cause it to go down completely and Jerami Grant is away from the team for now.

After the small outbreak detected within the national team, those responsible for Team USA decided last night cancel the friendly against Australia that were to be played after midnight from Friday to Saturday. Despite this decision justified by an “abundance of caution”, Sunday’s game against Spain remains standing for now.

The ‘aussie’ set is also under strict protocols to avoid coronavirus infections, a situation that also influenced the decision according to sources consulted by ‘ESPN’.

The US team players have had freedom of movement these days by the hotel and casino complex where they stay, located in Las Vegas, Nevada. It is unknown how Beal came into contact with the virus, as was Grant.

Technical managers are now looking for a replacement for the Washington Wizards guard, and Trae Young has already posted a video rejecting the invitation to the Isiah Thomas: “I don’t know what happened in that process. I met the criteria to be selected but I was not ”.

Gregg Popovich said that Beal’s replacement will have to arrive in good shape., as many of the players are now in their vacation period.
