At this point, Jerry Colangelo and company must be praying that they will still have a healthy roster of 12 players by then.
Last week, we learned that Miami Heat stars Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh would be forced to sit out of the Olympics this summer due to injuries. It only got worse yesterday, when Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports broke the news that No. 1 overall pick Anthony Davis will likely miss the Olympics after severely spraining his ankle during a workout this past weekend.
Of the 22 players that have been named to the preliminary roster, only 15 are healthy enough to play. Beyond Wade, Bosh and Davis, Derrick Rose, Dwight Howard, LaMarcus Aldridge and Chauncey Billups will all be rehabilitating injuries this summer instead of playing for a chance at an Olympic gold medal.
But, barring further injuries this week, the Americans will still enter the Olympics as the gold-medal favorites.
So, distract yourself from the free agency madness for a few minutes and check out one man's picks for Team USA.
